Call for expression of interest (EOI) to collaborate in Designing Humane AI Solutions

Proposed Study

The proposed study underscores the importance of incorporating several critical considerations from the outset of AI development, emphasizing the need for an ethical and holistic approach to AI design and implementation. These include transparency and explainability, fairness and equity, human centricity, and as well as accountability and integrity.  By systematically addressing these key considerations throughout the development process, the methodologies and frameworks developed will seek to promote responsible AI design and deployment. Through a combination of guidelines, best practices, and tools, we aim to empower developers to design AI systems that are transparent, fair, human-centered, and accountable.

The Alliance for AI & Humanity is seeking academics and practitioners to participate in this study to develop a framework and guidelines for AI application methodology. Interested parties may send us their CV and relevant experience (in AI with a focus on Ethics, Governance and Transparency).

EOI must be submitted by May 3rd, 2024. Please email us at contact@AAIG.SG


When designing AI solutions, it is crucial to consider various ethical and practical aspects to ensure they align with societal values and expectations. Several key considerations include transparency and explainability, fairness and equity, human centricity, as well as accountability and integrity.

Transparency and Explainability: AI systems should be transparent about their functioning and decisions. Users and stakeholders need to understand how AI algorithms arrive at conclusions or recommendations. Explainability ensures that AI systems are accountable and trustworthy, by explaining the rationale for a decision.

Fairness and Equity: AI applications must be designed to uphold principles of fairness and equity, ensuring that they do not discriminate against any individuals or groups based on factors such as race, gender, or socioeconomic status. Fair AI systems promote inclusivity and mitigate biases by considering diverse perspectives and ensuring equitable outcomes.

Human Centricity: AI systems should be designed with human well-being in mind, considering the impact on individuals and society at large. Human-centric design focuses on enhancing user experience, accessibility, and usability, while also addressing ethical concerns and respecting human autonomy.

Accountability and Integrity: AI developers and organizations must take responsibility for the outcomes of their systems. Establishing clear accountability frameworks ensures that stakeholders can be held accountable for any adverse consequences or ethical breaches.

Privacy Considerations: In addition to data protection, the broader privacy implications of AI, like the risks of surveillance and personal autonomy erosion, should be examined. Developing AI models that prioritize privacy can help protect individual freedoms and maintain user trust.

Long-term Societal Impact: Investigating the long-term effects of AI on societal structures, including changes in social norms, power dynamics, and AI’s influence on human behavior and decision-making, is crucial. This long-term view can guide the development of AI solutions that positively influence societal progress.

Environmental Impact: The environmental footprint of AI systems, including their energy consumption and the sustainability of their lifecycle processes, should be a key consideration. By incorporating environmental sustainability into the design phase, AI solutions can become more eco-friendly and environmentally responsible.

There are methodologies and frameworks available for designing ethical AI solutions incorporating the above factors. However mostly they provide guidelines and best practices to help developers integrate ethical considerations into the design, development, and deployment of AI systems.

Going forward we need a software development process for building AI solutions that incorporate humanity into consideration represents a conscientious approach aimed at ensuring that artificial intelligence systems align with human values, ethics, and well-being. This process should include several key steps to integrate the above human-centric factors throughout the development lifecycle. Firstly, it necessitates a deep understanding of human behavior, psychology, and societal norms to inform the design and training of AI models. This understanding serves as the foundation for establishing ethical guidelines and constraints to govern AI behavior and decision-making. Secondly, the development process must involve extensive stakeholder engagement, including input from diverse communities and experts, to incorporate various perspectives and address potential biases or unintended consequences. Thirdly, robust testing and validation procedures are essential to assess AI systems’ performance in real-world scenarios and ensure they satisfy the human-centric factors. Finally, ongoing monitoring and feedback mechanisms are crucial to iteratively improve AI solutions and adapt them to evolving societal needs and concerns.

As each AI solution is designed for a distinct purpose, it’s essential to pinpoint the pertinent human-centric factors during requirement definition. These factors should be consistently addressed at every stage of the software development process to ensure they are fulfilled.
