#artificialintelligence

As more companies adopt AI, the risks posed by AI are becoming clearer to business leaders. That is driving many companies to hire AI ethicists to help guide them through an ethical minefield. But just as data scientists proved to be as elusive as unicorns, qualified AI ethics are also in very short supply, says Beena Ammanath, executive director of Deloitte's AI Institute. "We've seen different models evolving. It's still very nascent," Ammanath tells Datanami.

Google firing its AI ethical lead Timnit Gebru and AI researcher Margaret Mitchell back-to-back has brought discussions around ethical and responsible AI to the fore. In the last few years, AI ethicists have become a critical role in the AI industry, with many organisations -- both big and small -- looking to hire AI ethics managers to keep their data sane. The use of AI comes with many ethical implications impacting companies, employees, customers, and other stakeholders. Research suggests, about 30% of large companies in the US have taken up multiple AI projects and are already building and deploying AI applications. However, most organisations don't have a specific plan to ensure Fair AI.

The Joint Artificial Intelligence Center (JAIC), a newly formed AI arm of the Department of Defense, plans to hire an AI ethicist to help address AI ethical concerns and guide the DoD in researching and deploying these technologies. Walmart recently created and filled a digital citizenship role to advise the retail corporation on issues associated with emerging technologies, data governance and privacy. Data and AI ethics are becoming increasingly important to organizations across many industries, as organizations look to get ahead of potential AI ethical concerns. "All organizations aspire to behave ethically and for their employees to behave ethically," said David Schatsky, managing director at Deloitte. "It's not that suddenly ethics is important and it wasn't before."
