TOKYO, Japan –Gartner predicts that 50% of governments worldwide will enforce the use of responsible artificial intelligence (AI) through regulations, policies and the need for data privacy by 2026.

While these guidelines are being developed, AI continues to evolve at a rapid pace. Professional security solutions provider i-PRO Co., Ltd. (formerly Panasonic Security) “underscores the critical importance of ethical and responsible AI practices in the physical security domain” with its “Ethical Principles for AI.”

“Recognizing the profound impact of AI on society, i-PRO has always placed paramount importance on fostering an environment of responsible and ethical AI usage,” according to the company announcement. i-PRO’s Ethical Principles for AI create “a framework designed to balance the advancement of AI technology with social responsibility and ethical considerations,” the announcement says.

Inside i-PRO’s Ethical Principles for Artificial Intelligence

The key tenets of the i-PRO “Ethical Principles for AI” include:

Achieving enhanced quality of life and fostering a safer, more secure society: i-PRO endeavors to create enduring value that contributes to the safety and security of society, through continued artificial intelligence research and development.

The company “will continuously evaluate the human, societal, and environmental impact of its AI products and services to further improve its technology offerings,” according to its announcement.

Protecting human rights and privacy: i-PRO prioritizes the protection of fundamental human rights in the development and deployment of artificial intelligence solutions. Upholding data protection and privacy principles guides every aspect of our operations.

“We enforce stringent authorization and authentication protocols to safeguard sensitive data within our AI-driven applications,” the company announcement says. “Furthermore, we are committed to providing our customers with embedded tools to facilitate compliance with evolving AI regulations.”

Transparency and fairness: i-PRO pledges to uphold principles of transparency and fairness, fostering diversity and equality to combat bias, discrimination, and unfair practices that could potentially be created by the use of AI. We will achieve this by consistently and thoroughly testing our AI models to build confidence in their performance and mitigate risks.

Education and training: As a driving force in the development of AI solutions, i-PRO will continue to focus on educating its workforce, partners, customers and the industry at large on the power, potential and ethical consideration of artificial intelligence in the physical security environment.

By fostering collaboration and establishing an open dialog with key stakeholders, i-PRO will be able to address emerging challenges and drive meaningful change within the artificial intelligence ecosystem.

“While we believe AI solutions can enhance automation and inform decisions, we also believe that this should not come at the expense of responsible usage, ethical standards, or privacy compliance,” says Masato Nakao, CEO at i-PRO, in the company announcement.

“As the physical security industry continues to embrace the promise of AI, we look forward to working together with our industry colleagues, partners, and customers to foster a culture of responsible AI development and usage,” he says.
