This report describes the outcome of task 4.3, Current coverage of ethical guidelines by professional organisations, ethics advisory groups, and research ethics committees for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics (AI&R). For this task, the SIENNA partners searched for documents which could give normative guidance (excluding legislation) for stakeholders in AI&R. Three kinds of documents were searched in different EU countries and internationally:
professional ethics codes
documents from professional groups and ethics advisory groups, and
guidance documents on how to write research ethics protocols in different EU countries and internationally.
Furthermore, representatives of research ethics committees have been asked for the following information in an online survey:
− to what extent are they aware of AI&R developments and ethical issues associated with them?
− how do they currently approach these issues and do they have plans to more explicitly feature them?
