Lessons Learned in Performing a Trustworthy AI and Fundamental Rights Assessment

I am super proud of our work together and very happy to share with you that the big report for our pilot project is now public online in ArXiv!

” This report is made public. The results of this pilot are of great importance for the Dutch government, serving as a best practice with which public administrators can get started, and incorporate ethical and human rights values when considering the use of an AI system and/or algorithms. It also sends a strong message to encourage public administrators to make the results of AI assessments like this one, transparent and available to the public.”

This report shares the experiences, results and lessons learned in conducting a pilot project “Responsible use of AI” in cooperation with the Province of Friesland, Rijks ICT Gilde-part of the Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations (BZK) (both in The Netherlands) and a group of members of the Z-Inspection® Initiative. The pilot project took place from May 2022 through January 2023. During the pilot, the practical application of a deep learning algorithm from the province of Frŷslan was assessed. The AI maps heathland grassland by means of satellite images for monitoring nature reserves. Environmental monitoring is one of the crucial activities carried on by society for several purposes ranging from maintaining standards on drinkable water to quantifying the CO2 emissions of a particular state or region. Using satellite imagery and machine learning to support decisions is becoming an important part of environmental monitoring. The main focus of this report is to share the experiences, results and lessons learned from performing both a Trustworthy AI assessment using the Z-Inspection® process and the EU framework for Trustworthy AI, and combining it with a Fundamental Rights assessment using the Fundamental Rights and Algorithms Impact Assessment (FRAIA) as recommended by the Dutch government for the use of AI algorithms by the Dutch public authorities.
