This report contains two sets of ethical guidelines – one for the technological development and one for the use – of artificial intelligence and big data systems, a glossary, two annexes, and a list of references. It is a deliverable of the SHERPA project, an EU Horizon 2020 project on the ethical and human rights implications of AI and big data. The guidelines differ from other existing guidelines in that they are directly related to design and development practices. They are intended to be actionable guidelines for systems and software development and use respectively, rather than abstract principles that have no direct application in practice. We call such guidelines operational, meaning ready for use.
