Only half a year ago not many of us would bet on AI to be available for anyone in everyday life or business. The level of AI democratization in such a short time is surprising. AI has become a defining technology of our time, and we are optimistic about its potential to benefit people, industry, and society. As we move into this new era, all of us building, deploying, and using AI are obligated to do so responsibly.
We stand at an inflection point where AI breakthroughs will transform how we work and live. As this technology becomes increasingly accepted and widely adopted, it is essential that organizations prioritize responsible adoption to ensure positive outcomes. AI can support the needs of all industries, as it brings automatization, flexibility and reduces expenses, freeing up employees’ time for creativity and innovation, powering up productivity. For example, in insurance, finance and banking, AI disrupts traditional way of thinking and working and acts as a catalyst for transformation throughout the business.
At Microsoft, we recognize this imperative and have made it a priority to advocate responsible AI practices. By sharing our AI principles, best practices, and tools with organizations, we can help them build AI-enabled applications that prioritize fairness, reliability, safety, privacy, security, inclusiveness, transparency, and accountability. Our ecosystem of partners and Microsoft experts stand ready to assist organizations in exploring these new capabilities and building AI-enabled applications that meet their unique needs. This is how organizations can leverage our expertise and experience to build responsible AI applications that positively impact society.
As part of this commitment, we are dedicated to publicly sharing our learnings, best practices, and tools guiding our efforts. Microsoft’s approach to Responsible AI is grounded in our AI principles. By putting these principles into practice across the company, we empower teams to design and implement AI systems responsibly while ensuring they align with our core principles. We believe this approach will lead to better products, solutions, and outcomes for our customers and society.
We understand the eagerness for the potential of AI to benefit society, but we also recognize the importance of responsible adoption. That’s why we’re committed to supporting our customers in the responsible application of AI products and forming trustworthy partnerships.
We encourage organizations to engage with us and make use of our resources. Together, we can build a better future for all by harnessing the power of AI responsibly and ethically.
