Why you need an AI ethics committee

The rise in artificial intelligence brings with it ethical risks: From issues with bias, privacy concerns, and more, the impact when a problem occurs can be monumental. Consider the data used to train AI – it may reflect historical bias. In some cases, it undersamples specific subpopulations. What if you’ve set the wrong goal? These are not easy issues to address and aren’t as easy to combat as a quick technical fix. Businesses should bring in a committee – comprising ethicists, lawyers, technologists, business strategists, and bias scouts – to review any AI your company develops or buys to identify the ethical risks it presents and address how to mitigate them. Download this article from author and chief ethics officer Reid Blackman to find out how to set up such a committee effectively.
