Expert Vlogging Series 1.0: How to put AI ethics into practice? | Diogo Duarte, Legal Consultant and Researcher, Data Protection

This is the AI Policy Exchange Expert Vlogging Series featuring vlogs from our technical/policy experts addressing some of the hardest questions confronting the governance of artificially intelligent technologies.

In each AI Policy Exchange Expert Vlogging Series, we ask all our technical/policy experts a common question. Experts respond to the question through short, illuminating vlogs sent to us. We then upload these vlogs to our YouTube channel and also post them on our website.

We posed the following question to our experts as part of our AI Policy Exchange Expert Vlogging Series 1.0: How to put AI ethics into practice? 

This question arose from findings by public policy and ethics researchers claiming that AI ethics principles & guidelines proposed by various public bodies and private groups in their current form likely have a negligible effect on the safe development, deployment, and use of artificially intelligent technologies.

Diogo joined AI Policy Exchange as a technical/policy expert later in May this year. Diogo is a consultant in Data Protection with SMEs and local public authorities. He holds a degree in Law and a Master’s in International Law and International Relations from the University of Lisbon. Initially, Diogo’s interest in Law was closely connected to Human Rights, so that was his specialization. After several years of working with administrative and public procurement law, Diogo found his vocation in Data Protection related to the application of new technology. He specializes in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). He has explored topics such as blockchain and cybersecurity, and is currently working on the use of AI to process biometric data. Diogo also collaborates occasionally with several entities, such as the Swiss CyberSecurity Association, the Cyberlaw Research Centre of the University of Lisbon School of Law, and the Portuguese Human Rights Observatory, to name a few. He is also the co-founder of Privacidade XXI, a podcast that focuses on privacy, data protection and cybersecurity.
