Fujitsu Establishes the Fujitsu Group External Advisory Committee on AI Ethics to Ensure the Safe and Secure Deployment of AI in Society


TOKYO, Sept 30, 2019 – Fujitsu Limited has announced the establishment of the Fujitsu Group External Advisory Committee on AI Ethics, which is comprised of external experts. The committee will hold its first meeting today at Fujitsu’s global headquarters in Tokyo.

The committee aims to regularly discuss issues relating to ethics in the rapidly transforming field of AI, provide feedback to the Fujitsu Group AI Commitment(1), and embark on an ongoing dialogue with stakeholders throughout society to support the safe and secure use of emergent AI.

To help resolve ever-changing societal issues and environmental problems, the Fujitsu Group will continue to promote the development and delivery of technologies as well as solutions and services that adhere to AI ethics.

In March 2019, Fujitsu defined the policies it should observe as an enterprise engaged in business as well as research and development in the field of AI. This statement, informed by Fujitsu’s Human Centric vision for AI, forms the Fujitsu Group AI Commitment. Based on this commitment, Fujitsu has now established a committee of external experts as a way of receiving objective, third-party evaluations of the Fujitsu Group’s AI ethics, thereby enhancing the Fujitsu Group’s corporate governance in the area of AI ethics.
