Ethically Driven Design
Identifying potential risks
The Design phase of implementing responsible AI is where the rubber really hits the road within your teams. It can be a time of confusion. "You say we need to meet these principles, but what does this really mean in my job" "How do I think this way?" "How do I apply it to the way I make decisions?" In this toolkit we are suggesting some Responsible AI design tools that make these complex ideas into real tradeoff discussions that your employees can use within their teams, with stakeholders and potential customers of the solution or product.
Conduct ethical impact assessments
to identify potential biases, discrimination, and unintended consequences in the design and implementation of AI systems.
