The U.S. Defense Innovation Board has published a set of ethical principles for how military agencies should design weapons enabled by artificial intelligence (AI) and apply them on the battlefield.

However, the board's recommendations are not legally binding, and it is now up to the Pentagon to determine how and whether to proceed with them.

The recommendations pertained mostly to broadly defined goals such as "formalizing these principles" or "cultivating the field of AI engineering."

Other recommendations included setting up a steering committee or a set of workforce training programs.

The document specified that AI systems should be equitable, traceable, reliable, and governable.
