This charter outlines the mission, objectives, structure, and guidelines governing the participation in the Working Group.

Mission and Objectives:

The mission of the Working Group is to advance the understanding, development, and dissemination of responsible and secure AI practices. Our key objectives are as follows:

1. Promote research and knowledge sharing on responsible AI development, ethics, and security.
2. Provide educational resources and materials for AI professionals, researchers, and the broader community.
3. Foster collaboration and exchange of best practices among participants.


The Working Group shall consist of the following components:

1. Steering Committee: Comprised of selected leaders in the field of AI ethics and security. Responsible for overall governance, strategy, and decision-making.
2. Research and Education Sub-Working Groups: Specialized groups focusing on specific topics within responsible and secure AI. These sub-working groups will conduct research, create educational content, and organize events.
3. Participants: Individuals and organizations interested in contributing to the mission of the Working Group by engaging in research, educational activities, and collaborative initiatives.

Participant Guidelines:

Participation in the Responsible and Secure AI Framework Working Group is open to individuals, academic institutions, non-profit organizations, and industry representatives who share our commitment to the research and educational nature of the engagement. To ensure a productive and inclusive environment, the following guidelines must be adhered to:

6. Transparency: Participants are encouraged to openly disclose any conflicts of interest that may arise during the course of their participation.
