Ethos means 'virtue' in the Aristotelian sense and denotes the internal values that characterise an individual. Democratic Ethos encompasses the guiding ideals, the fundamental values and virtues of Democracy itself. It denotes a set of values, virtues, rights, and responsibilities embraced by members of a community who are committed to a flourishing Democracy; values that can act as a moral code for AI. It depicts the need to protect and promote the freedoms, rights, interests and welfare of people.
Democratic Ethos in AI-by-Design calls for the moral ideals and fundamental rights of Democracy to be taken into account throughout the whole engineering process of AI, as well as the methods that can subsequently verify that an intelligent agent’s conduct and use remain within these moral and democratic bounds (certification).
