This report contains ethical guidelines for the deployment and use of artificial intelligence (AI) and big data systems in organisations.
The guidelines differ from others in that they are directly related to practices of deployment, implementation and use. They are intended to be actionable guidelines for organisations that use these systems, rather than abstract principles that have no direct application in practice. We call such guidelines operational, meaning ready for use. Applying these guidelines in practice would result in more ethical use of AI and big data technologies.
