How not to mess up with technology: Why ethics matter!
While more organisations are exploring AI and machine learning tools, few have any policies around ethical issues like bias and governance. Everyone is betting on AI but issues related to lack of governance and unintended consequences could inhibit the success of AI investments and slow down adoption. How do technology leaders make ethics and governance part of AI initiatives and build a culture of responsible use, trust and transparency?
