Microsoft Responsible AI Standard v2 General Requirements
When Microsoft embarked on their effort to operationalise Microsoft’s six AI principles, they knew there was a policy gap. Laws and norms had not caught up with AI’s unique risks or society’s needs. Yet, their product development teams needed concrete and actionable guidance as to what their principles meant and how they could uphold them. They leveraged the expertise on their research, policy, and engineering teams to develop guidance on how to fill that gap. The Responsible AI Standard is the product of a multi-year effort to define product development requirements for responsible AI. They are making available this second version of the Responsible AI Standard to share what we have learned, invite feedback from others, and contribute to the discussion about building better norms and practices around AI.
