All NSW government agencies are required from March 2022 to use the AI Assurance Framework. The Framework assists project teams using AI to comprehensively analyse and document their projects’ AI specific risks. It also assists teams to implement risk mitigation strategies and establish clear governance and accountability measures. Under the AI Policy and AI Assurance Framework, agencies are required to abide by the following ethical principles: Community benefit – AI should deliver the best outcome for the citizen, and key insights into decision-making. Fairness – use of AI will include safeguards to manage data bias or data quality risks. Privacy and security – AI will include the highest levels of assurance. Transparency – review mechanisms will ensure citizens can question and challenge AI-based outcomes. Accountability – decision-making remains the responsibility of organisations and individuals.
