Upcoming Rolling Deadline: May 31, 2022
There is a swarm of artificial intelligence (AI) ethics standards and regulations being discussed, developed, and released worldwide. The need for an academic discussion forum for the application of such standards and regulations is evident. The research community needs to keep track of any updates for such standards, and the publication of use cases and other practical considerations for such.
This Special Issue of the journal AI on “Standards and Ethics in AI” will publish research papers on applied AI ethics, including the standards in AI ethics. This implies interactions among technology, science, and society in terms of applied AI ethics and standards; the impact of such standards and ethical issues on individuals and society; and the development of novel ethical practices of AI technology. The journal will also provide a forum for the open discussion of resulting issues of the application of such standards and practices across different social contexts and communities. More specifically, this Special Issue welcomes submissions on the following topics:
- AI ethics standards and best practices;
- Applied AI ethics and case studies;
- AI fairness, accountability, and transparency;
- Quantitative metrics of AI ethics and fairness;
- Review papers on AI ethics standards;
- Reports on the development of AI ethics standards and best practices.
Note, however, that manuscripts that are philosophical in nature might be discouraged in favor of applied ethics discussions where readers have a clear understanding of the standards, best practices, experiments, quantitative measurements, and case studies that may lead readers from academia, industry, and government to find actionable insight.
