The Responsible AI Index 

 Executive Summary

Does your organisation have a strategy for the development of AI that is tied to your wider business strategy?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has huge potential to improve Australians’ well-being, the economy and society. However, the powerful outcomes that can be delivered by AI have to be weighed against considerations around the potential harms it may cause, not limited to personal privacy, algorithmic biases and issues of justice.

A lack of regulation, legislation and guidelines to monitor AI’s development and use increases the risks that AI is developed without a true understanding of responsibility, potentially creating negative outcomes for individuals, society and the environment. AI technology maturity is years ahead of legislation or regulation of AI, therefore organisations should turn to frameworks and guidelines as well as ethical leadership to guide them through.Download the Executive Summary
