While most of the debate is focused on AI principles, at Eticas we focus on practices and policies. We specialise in developing policy tools that allow governments to show leadership in tackling the challenges of the digital age.


We develop automation strategies, technology procurement guidelines, algorithmic registries, algorithmic leaflets, AI scorecards and any other tailored solution that contributes to helping the public sector make better choices while also building the incentives that will lead to the development of better AI solutions.
