16th October 2020

NXP Semiconductors has publicly launched its AI Ethics initiative, underscoring the company’s commitment to the ethical development of AI components and systems where people work and live, known as the ‘edge’ of computer networks. With secure, power efficient edge computing and AI, everyday devices not only sense their environments, but also interpret, analyse, and act in real-time on the data collected.

Published in a new whitepaper entitled The Morals of Algorithms, the company details its comprehensive framework for AI principles: non-maleficence, human autonomy, explicability, continued attention and vigilance, and privacy and security by design. These principles are rooted in NXP's corporate values, ethical guidelines, and a long tradition of building some of the world's most sophisticated secure devices. The AI framework evolved as a result of a cross-company collaboration, including inputs and insights across engineering and customer-facing teams around the world.

NXP has a portfolio of microcontrollers (MCUs) and processors that are optimised for machine learning applications ‘at the edge’ of networks, including thermostats, security systems, car sensors, robots and industrial automation and other devices, thereby making them not only intelligent but faster, more flexible, and more secure.

In this latest podcast from Electronic Specifier Insights we will be talking to Dr. Svend Buhl who is Head of Government Affairs NXP Germany. He is also the Chairman of the Global Government Affairs Board of NXP Semiconductors.

Svend will be discussing the recent announcement which underlines NXP's commitment to the ethical development of AI components and systems.
