(Preamble) 1. Ensure the development of an AI at the service of individuals and society. The developed AI technology must obey its creators, as long as they do not conflict with human autonomy, the individual good and the common good. 2. AI developers are responsible for their projects and must take into account the impact that each project may have on society. We will work to avoid potentially harmful or abusive applications. As we develop and implement AI technologies, we will evaluate probable uses in light of the following factors: Purpose, nature and Impact. 3. Given the non deterministic nature of intelligent systems, a system of constant tests and validations must be established, including the inputs made to the system and its overall behavior. The architecture of AI systems must establish behavioral limits. 4. Protect the right of each person on the privacy of their data (sensitive personal information) and in the same way give ethical use to the information of each individual always with the prior consent of its owner. Each person's consent will be required regarding the use of the generation of new data created from the AI. 5. The development of an AI technology should take care of the effects on the environment. The impact that each creation may have cannot represent a threat to our environment. 6. The development of AI technologies and their effects must always be in compliance with current legislation and respect local cultural and social norms. 7. Respect and protect intellectual property at all levels and to the highest standard. All actors involved in the creation will receive the corresponding compensation for their work. 8. Avoid biases and unfair impacts on people, particularly those related to sensitive characteristics such as race, ethnicity, gender, nationality, income, sexual orientation, ability and political or religious beliefs. 9. The labor transformation is a reality, the development of AI must also as a principle collaborate in the retraining and placement of the labor force that it replaces, through education and complement of the new skills and competencies necessary. 10. Allocate resources and focus on the security of systems and data. Cyber ​​security must be a priority for everyone, not only to maintain and improve services, but also as a fundamental part of creating the necessary trust. 11. Commitment to open research, intellectual rigor, integrity and collaboration. AI tools have the potential to unlock new areas of scientific research and knowledge in critical domains such as biology, chemistry, medicine and environmental sciences. We aspire to high standards of scientific excellence while working to advance the development of AI.
