What is Responsible Artificial Intelligence?
Responsible AI (sometimes referred to as ethical AI or trustworthy AI) is a multi-disciplinary effort to design and build AI systems to improve our lives. Responsible AI systems are designed with careful consideration of their fairness, accountability, transparency, and most importantly, their impact on people and on the world.
The field of responsible AI draws from many disciplines, including computer science, social science, economics, law, policy, and ethics. Creating responsible AI requires engaging all parts of society, especially those people affected by the system, and requires us all to decide how AI should contribute to our future.

- Finally, for some concrete examples of our work in Responsible AI, we have a selection of case studies.
