IEEE P7014 - Emulated Empathy in Autonomous and Intelligent Systems Working Group

Standard for Ethical considerations in Emulated Empathy in Autonomous and Intelligent Systems

This standard defines a model for ethical considerations and practices in the design, creation and use of empathic technology, incorporating systems that have the capacity to identify, quantify, respond to, or simulate affective states, such as emotions and cognitive states. This includes coverage of ‘affective computing’, ’emotion AI’ and related fields.

The purpose of this standard is to provide clear and practical guidance for the design and implementation of empathic systems that are prioritised to maximise human flourishing and protect users from bias, abuse or exploitation.

Working Group Meetings

The group’s official meetings are held on the fourth Wednesday of the month. We currently rotate the start time of meetings, starting at 15:00 UTC one month, then 16:00 UTC the next.

Meetings are conducted via conference call, always at the same location: join.me/ieeesawg_p7014

 

Get Involved

IEEE standards are built on consensus, through the efforts of working groups that are open to all. If you feel you can contribute to this important work, please get onboard.

Subscribe note 1: Use of the e-mail subscribe instruction requires that you supply your First Name followed by your Last Name and will subscribe the e-mail address from which the e-mail is sourced from. The e-mail subscribe instruction does not support an e-mail address field, if you try to use an e-mail address in the Name fields it will be rejected. If you wish to subscribe an e-mail address other than the one which your e-mail is sourced from, for example, the IEEE e-mail alias my.name@ieee.org, you will need to use the ListServ web interface. Use of this web interface will require the creation of a login but once this login has been created it will be used for all IEEE ListServ subscriptions you wish to manage.
