Join this free online course to learn about the importance and principles of ethics in the context of artificial intelligence (AI). Discover how SAP implements AI ethics in the development, deployment, use, and sale of AI systems, and explore the concept of generative AI in a newly added course unit.
SAP believes that artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to unlock all kinds of opportunities for businesses, governments, and society. However, AI also has the potential to create economic, political, and social challenges. The speed at which the technology has moved into common usage has outpaced the necessary guidance from government policymakers regarding the sustainable and safe development of AI. For these reasons, the development, deployment, use, and sale of AI systems at SAP needs to be governed by a clear, ethical set of rules.
In this course, you’ll learn the importance and principles of AI ethics, how AI ethics is implemented at SAP, and which rules SAP employees need to follow during the development, deployment, use, and sale of AI systems. Furthermore, you’ll explore the concept of generative AI and the specific challenges in its ethical development, deployment, and use.
