Sandbox for Responsible AI – A Procurement Scenario
Regulatory sandboxes aim to test new technologies transparently and to contribute to evidence-based lawmaking. They allow both public and private organisations to assess their services, products and procurement processes and ensure compliance with (new) regulatory regimen, and help regulators identify possible challenges to new regulation, such as those emerging around AI and autonomous systems. This promotes the development, procurement and deployment of innovative artificial intelligence solutions that are both ethical and responsible. Despite the wide interest in regulatory sandboxes applied to AI, there are limited examples of how these are to be designed, implemented, governed and used.
This proposal aims at developing a prototype for a regulatory sandbox focusing in particular on the case of public procurement of AI applications.
