More than 40 member nations of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) support principles to improve the transparency of artificial intelligence (AI).

The U.S.-endorsed guidelines urge the inclusion of fairness, transparency, and accountability in AI systems, and advise companies to detail sufficient information on how their systems function so people will understand their results and can dispute them.

The principles also recommend AI bolster the rule of law, human rights, democratic values, and diversity.

OECD head Angel Gurria said, "There are questions around the trustworthiness, the robustness of AI systems, including the dangers of codifying or reinforcing existing biases related to gender or race, or infringing on human rights and privacy."

The principles will be presented to the Group of 20 nations later this year.
