Industry professionals, researchers, policymakers and regulators, and
individuals need to be aware of the ethical and social implications of Al. Risks such as privacy intrusion, discrimination, and the proliferation of fake news can result in negative consequences
– intended or unintended – if Al is not governed in a sustainable way.
Unintended ethical breaches are often a result of algorithms using historical data that incorporates bias. Programmers who often lack proper skills and knowledge to understand AI’s broader societal implications can create intended or unintended values. Breaches can also result from immature Al, for example, if algorithms use a training data set which is insufficient or not diverse enough.
