Businesses today are rapidly scaling AI to gain powerful new capabilities and to improve how they operate. Humans and machines are increasingly working together. And this trend exposes businesses to heightened risk of AI behaving in ways that are unethical. Just like their human counterparts in the workforce, AI systems are expected to adhere to social norms and ethics and to make fair decisions in ways that are consistent, transparent, explainable, and unbiased. Of course, figuring out what is ethical and socially acceptable isn’t always easy - even for human workers.
