AI Ethics Expert at
the AI Incubator
About this Project
I have joined the AI Incubator as an AI Ethics Expert to help startups leverage AI safely.
My work to support startups includes:
➤ Social impact
Identifying the social and environmental impacts of their AI, negative and positive.
My approach: Start by identifying *who* the startup impacts, and then identify which of their rights are impacted.
A guidebook coming soon!
➤ Revenue impact
Identifying how AI responsibility (or lack thereof) impacts the company’s revenue
My approach: Look for sources of economic returns, intangible returns, and returns from the development of skills and knowledge.
➤ Responsible AI Governance Maturity
Measuring the company’s current level of AI responsibility
My approach: I have developed an AI responsibility maturity model based on the NIST AI RMF, probably the most well-respected guidance on AI governance. I will use it to help the startups map where they are and come up with a plan.
Paper reviewing the maturity model coming soon!
➤ Action plan
Build responsible AI practices into the company’s business model, including writing policies, designing processes, and setting up accountability structures.
My approach: If AI responsibility is a nice-to-have side-project, it’s doomed to fail. The trick is to incorporate AI ethics practices into the company’s business priorities and existing accountability structures.
