Don’t let AI and robot companies take away your rights

This petition had 215 supporters

We, the consumers, want you, robotics and AI companies, to show that you care about your responsibilities to us.

The Need for Transparency

Misleading sales pitches and lack of information make us unsure about which robotics and AI products we should trust. With food we can see the nutrition and organic labels, with coffee we have Fairtrade to know people are protected in the procurement of coffee, with electronic appliances we have labels to know if they are energy efficient. A similar idea is needed to protect our rights when it comes to robotics and AI products.

We are no longer satisfied with trading important values for convenience. We want you, the robotics and AI companies, to show that you are working to make products that respect the values of: safety, security, transparency, accountability, sustainability, and privacy. We need a Quality Mark that gives us consumer confidence in your product and rewards those who respect our core values.

Establishing Trust

Joining the initiative to create a Quality Mark will help to establish the public trust needed for commercial success. We believe that this can only come through independent scrutiny from those without vested interests. In this way responsible design, manufacture and sales will win out.  Having a Quality Mark provides the opportunity for you to demonstrate that your product has been designed, manufactured, implemented, and sold responsibly.

We ask that you join the efforts of the Foundation for Responsible Robotics and Deloitte in creating this quality mark. By doing so, we believe that you, robotics and AI companies, can make products that deliver incredible benefits to society without giving up on our values and human rights.
