AI Standards: Roadmap for Ethical and Responsible Digital Environments

  • Course Program

The purpose of this course series is to provide instructions for a comprehensive approach to creating ethical and responsible digital ecosystems. Because ethical transparency is critical to an organization’s success, it must be included in digital environments. Successful digital environments require rigorous ethical standards: Honesty & Impartiality, Protection & Security, and Safe Disclosure & Privacy. Creating ethical systems must be done through practical considerations of environment, constraints, emergencies, context, and ability. Ethical digital environments require understanding the data life cycle and ensuring equality, security, and privacy. In order for technology to improve our lives, it takes a community of partners to engineer and implement a comprehensive approach to creating ethical digital environments.

What you will learn:

  • Factors that relate to transparency in organization and systems
  • A comprehensive and holistic approach for the responsible use and development of technology
