Dec 21, 2021


PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — ZeroEyes, Inc., today announced its charter membership in the Data Ethics Consortium for Security (DECS) organization. Established earlier this year by a group of five artificial intelligence companies working in the security space, DECS serves to educate policymakers and integrators on ethical issues pertaining to artificial intelligence, machine learning, computer vision, and other emerging technologies.

“ZeroEyes has been a key participant in the initial heavy lifts to incorporate DECS as a non-profit, and a huge contributing member during our first summer of research,” said Amina Al Sherif, President of DECS. “The company has shown a clear prioritization of ethics in everything that it creates through proactive technical research for DECS, as well as assisting in outreach when it comes to involving policy makers in the conversation.”

ZeroEyes’ Chief of Staff, Kieran Carroll, added, “ZeroEyes is excited to participate in DECS as we feel that their mission aligns closely with the values of privacy rights, anti-bias, and ethical AI implementation that our company practices every day. Educating lawmakers, policymakers, and operators on topics like inherent bias, data integrity, and compromised methodologies is extremely important to both the company and the industry at large.”
