AI ethics & governance
Take an interdisciplinary approach that supports agile innovation and ensures governance of your AI systems.
AI brings unprecedented opportunities to businesses, but also incredible responsibility. The output from AI systems has a real bearing on people’s lives, raising considerable questions around AI ethics, data governance, trust, and legality. The more decisions a business puts into the hands of AI, the more they accept significant risks, such as reputational, employment/HR, data privacy, health and safety issues. However, according to an Accenture global research study, 88% of respondents do not have confidence in AI-based decisions.
So how do we learn to trust AI?
Responsible AI is the practice of designing, developing, and deploying AI with good intention to empower employees and businesses, and fairly impact customers and society—allowing companies to engender trust and scale AI with confidence.
With Responsible AI, you can shape key objectives and establish your governance strategy, creating systems that enable AI and your business to flourish.
Build responsibility into your AI to ensure that the algorithms – and underlying data – are as unbiased and representative as possible.
To build trust among employees and customers, develop explainable AI that is transparent across processes and functions.
Empower individuals in your business to raise doubts or concerns with AI systems and effectively govern technology, without stifling innovation.
Leverage a privacy and security-first approach to ensure personal and/or sensitive data is never used unethically.
By creating an ethical underpinning for AI, you can mitigate risk and establish systems that benefit your shareholders, employees and society at large.
An interdisciplinary, innovation-friendly approach can help you design responsibility into your AI from the start.

Once priorities are defined, they are evaluated through our Algorithmic Assessment, involving a series of qualitative and quantitative checks to support various stages of AI development. The assessment consists of four key steps:
