A new project has begun at the University of Aberdeen. Realising Accountable Intelligent Systems (RAInS) is funded by the EPSRC and is led by Professor Peter Edwards.
The RAInS project aims to realise processes by which intelligent systems can be made accountable, by developing an accountability fabric for use by a variety of stakeholders. The project will use computational models of provenance – as a substrate for enabling trust; such a mechanism facilitates transparency and accountability by recording the processes, entities and agents associated with a system and its behaviours-supporting verification and compliance monitoring.
This project is a collaboration between the University of Aberdeen, The University of Cambridge, and Oxford University.
