Digital transformation and the fourth industrial revolution are increasingly impacting all aspects of everyday life, including the business dimension. The use of AI comes with substantial advantages in the short, medium and long term, but also creates substantial new risks that must be appropriately addressed. These risks can hinder innovation and progress if they constitute an obstacle for the adoption of AI technologies. An ethical adoption of AI can encourage progress and innovation and therefore benefit both business and society at large. For this reason, this project aims to provide a clear and understandable thought starter for stakeholders to adopt AI safely within their activities, and emphasise the leadership role that firms can have in this process.
This project is in partnership with the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and the ICC Research Foundation. ICC is the institutional representative of more than 45 million companies in over 100 countries with a mission to make business work for everyone, every day, everywhere. Through a unique mix of advocacy, solutions and standard setting, ICC promotes international trade, responsible business conduct and a global approach to regulation, in addition to providing market-leading dispute resolution services. Members include many of the world’s leading companies, SMEs, business associations and local chambers of commerce.
