Ethics Assessments

Assess the full ethical impact, including ethical risks and opportunities of your organisation’s product, service or programme

AI tools are not intrinsically good or bad. Each one can be used to promote societal values and individual rights, or to impact them negatively. However, the ethical impact of tools on individuals, society and the environment can be difficult to foresee. Consequently, every AI tool ought to undergo a comprehensive ethical impact assessment. 

We assess the full ethical impact, including ethical risks and opportunities of your organisation’s product, service or programme.

We evaluate them according to:

Ethical and societal values

Human and fundamental rights

Implicit and explicit bias in data, models and operation of the tool

Non-discrimination of gender, sex, age, ability, worldview, race, ethnicity

The potential for harm

Potential burdens on vulnerable individuals and groups

Societal acceptability

Environmental sustainability
