John is Executive Director of The Global Initiative for Ethical Considerations in the Design of Autonomous Systems, an Industry Connections Program of the IEEE Standards Association.  It was formed with two primary deliverables: create a document featuring key issues in Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Systems (AI/AS) grounded in ethically-aligned design; and, make Standard Project recommendations to IEEE-SA based on these issues. The Initiative is guided by over one hundred thought leaders with a mission of ensuring every technologist is educated, trained, and empowered to prioritize ethical considerations in the design and development of autonomous and intelligent systems.
