AI Principles reviews and operations

We assess proposals for new AI research and applications for alignment with our Principles. As advanced technologies emerge and evolve, we’ll continue to refine our process.


At Google, a central team is dedicated to ethical reviews of new AI and advanced technologies before launch, working with internal domain experts in machine-learning fairness, security, privacy, human rights, the social sciences, and, for cultural context, Google’s employee resource groups.

*Each review is unique. This is intended only as a very high-level summary, and reflects the current process.
