Continental is developing a code of ethics for the use of artificial intelligence
Continental has developed a code of ethics for the use of artificial intelligence. The technology company says decisions taken by self-learning systems must be transparent and understandable.
“Artificial intelligence can and must only be programmed and used in accordance with clear ethical principles,” explains Dirk Abendroth, chief technology officer of Continental Automotive. “Smart algorithms play a huge role in the automotive industry, such as in the case of autonomous driving. As a technology company, we are responsible for ensuring that all our product developments and internal processes are in keeping with ethical standards. This is why AI-based decision-making must always be nondiscriminatory.”
