  • human-centred values and fairness;
  • transparency and explainability;
  • robustness, security and safety;
  • and accountability.

In addition to and consistent with these value-based principles, the Recommendation also provides five recommendations to policy-makers pertaining to national policies and international co-operation for trustworthy AI, namely:

  • investing in AI research and development;
  • fostering a digital ecosystem for AI;
  • shaping an enabling policy environment for AI;
  • building human capacity and preparing for labour market transformation;
  • and international co-operation for trustworthy AI.
