Dear IEC YPs,

The SMB is offering a new opportunity for YPs to get involved in its work:

AhG 79, Autonomous Systems – Ethics, is looking for an IEC YP representative to participate in its work. This ahG’s task is to assess the role of IEC and standards in addressing ethics, trust and values particularly in autonomous systems (including artificial intelligence), and making recommendations to SMB on how best to deal with the subject.


If you are interested to participate in ahG 79 please send me an email by Tuesday 27 March with a short paragraph on your motivation to join the group.

Looking forward to hearing from you on the above.

Kind regards,


Robert McLaren
IEC Young Professionals Programme Coordinator
