Mission & Strategic Goals
The University of California (UC) is consistently on the cutting edge of Artificial Intelligence (AI) research and development. While AI can pose significant gains in efficiency, effectiveness, and equity, ill-conceived deployments risk imposing disproportionate harms.
In order to guide the appropriate implementation of AI within the UC system, President Drake formed a Presidential Working Group that was charged with developing overarching ethical principles and guides for the University’s current and future use of AI.
The Presidential Working Group has published a final report outlining a set of “UC Ethical AI Principles” and recommendations for how UC can operationalize the principles in the development and application of AI in ways that are consistent with UC’s mission and values.
