Responsible AI demands that businesses, governments and technology leaders
recognize they have a duty to manage all negative consequences of AI. It is an
understanding that the development of AI needs to be guided by, above all, ethics.
Economic growth will always be a key driver for AI development, but Responsible AI will
ensure that it is never at the cost of overall human wellbeing. To meet this objective,
transparency is critical, and AI must comply fully with all relevant regulatory
What are the consequences of getting the transition to AI wrong? Unlike many of the
"fear, uncertainty and dread" narratives that often meet the arrival of new technologies,
the harmful potential of AI is real. Even today, in our immature phase of AI
development, examples abound of what happens when AI applications are not trained
or tested in the right way. Take the numerous accidents involving autonomous vehicles
as a case in point, or the several high-profile cases where AI bots have developed
gender and racial bias. The worry is that as AI applications reach deeper into our
businesses, governments and communities, the negative consequences of any such
flaws could be catastrophic.
