Publisher: Institute of Business Ethics (IBE)

Much of the scepticism around the future of AI is fuelled by the fear that humans might lose control over the machines, which would then prevail and possibly wipe out humanity altogether. To have full control over AI systems, it is important that both companies and algorithm designers only work with technology that they fully understand. Being able to explain the functionalities of a technology of which they appear to be in control of is essential to build trust with employees, customers and all stakeholders.
