Fujitsu Limited has announced the decision to establish a new organization to strengthen its governance of AI ethics.
In March 2019, Fujitsu formulated the “Fujitsu Group AI Commitment. With this commitment as a point of departure, in September 2019 Fujitsu further established the “Fujitsu Group External Advisory Committee on AI Ethics” to ensure an objective evaluation of Fujitsu’s AI ethics framework by an impartial third party.
On February 1, Fujitsu will newly establish the “AI Ethics and Governance Office” (Head: Junichi Arahori). The new office will focus on implementing measures to actively promote ethics related to the research, development, and implementation of advanced technologies.
