”Ethics is the starting point, that divides what you should do and what you should not do with this kind of knowledge and information and technology.”
Businesses Aren’t Worried
In a survey of more than 5,300 employers and employees in six countries, nearly two-thirds of employers say their organization would be using AI by 2022. However, 54% of employers say they aren’t concerned that the organization could use AI unethically, according to the study by Genesys, a customer-experience company in San Francisco. Similarly, 52% aren’t worried that employees would misuse AI.
Governments Propose Guidelines
In April, the European Commission issued Ethics Guidelines for Trustworthy Artificial Intelligence (Luotettavaa Tekoälyä koskevat eettiset ohjeet) based on the idea that AI should be lawful, ethical, and robust. The OECD followed that in May by releasing principles for responsible stewardship of trustworthy AI.
