AI ethics in the workplace is an important differentiating factor. AI leaders believe that, despite the pandemic, ethics will have a significant impact on work in coming years. Companies with high AI ethics can attract more customers and young talents and cooperate on long-standing industry issues such as fraud, financial crime, and economic exclusion.
AI's way of entering the enterprise is still in the early stages and has great hope, especially for industries with rich data, decision-making and insights. To achieve this commitment, companies must address some practical considerations, such as how to acquire skills, understand the market and manage data, and policy considerations, such as how to manage AI, and use AI within their business in a responsible and consistent manner with values and participate in the formulation of AI regulations and industry standards.
The application of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (ML) can create better access to information for global citizens and safer workplaces, more accurate health diagnoses, and many. The fourth industrial revolution will signify a new era of cooperation between humans and AI and may positively impact the world.
