Orange announces the creation of its Data and AI Ethics Council, composed of 11 leading figures in the field. Chaired by Stéphane Richard, Chairman and CEO of Orange, this advisory and independent body's mission is to support the implementation by the company of ethical principles governing the use of data and artificial intelligence technologies
The ORANGE Group has been mobilized for several years on the subject of ethical and responsible AI: it is conducting a research program to contribute to the responsible development, use and governance of human-centric AI systems. In 2020, it was awarded the GEEIS-AI (Gender Equality Diversity European & International Standard - AI) label in recognition of its actions to promote diversity and avoid the risks of discrimination in AI-based systems. Orange has also contributed to producing recommendations for a "Trusted AI Ethics" within the European Commission's "High Level Expert Group" and supports the Impact AI collective, the leading Think & Do Tank for ethical artificial intelligence in France.
