Global guidelines launched for managing AI at work

Following research which showed that 61% wanted global guidelines for the technology, the international standard (BS ISO/IEC 42001) is intended to assist organisations in responsibly using AI by addressing considerations including non-transparent automatic decision-making, the utilisation of machine learning instead of human-coded logic for system design and continuous learning.

BSI’s Chief Executive Officer, Susan Taylor Martin, said: “AI is a transformational technology. For it to be a powerful force for good, trust is critical. The publication of the first international AI management system standard is an important step in empowering organisations to responsibly manage the technology, which in turn offers the opportunity to harness AI to accelerate progress towards a better future and a sustainable world.”

BSI’s recent “Trust in AI” poll of 10,000 adults across nine countries found three-fifths globally and the same proportion in the UK (62%) wanted international guidelines to enable the safe use of AI. Nearly two-fifths globally (38%) already use AI every day at work, while more than two-thirds (62%) expect their industries to do so by 2030.

The new guidance, published in the UK by BSI as the UK’s National Standards Body, sets out how to establish, implement, maintain and continually improve an AI management system, with a focus on safeguards.

It is an impact-based framework that provides requirements to facilitate context-based AI risk assessments, with details on risk treatments and controls for internal and external AI products and services.
