Our Exciting Opportunity

How Artificial Intelligence, AI, will affect the society is has been a discussion for a while, however a recent discussion whether AI should be regulated is a new topic. The EU has recently issued a document on ethical guidelines for AI in respect to European values and principles. Since these guidelines are very new, it is difficult to know how they affect Ericsson and how other companies are working with Compliant/responsible/ethical AI. Therefore, the goal is to explore these guidelines and how they affect us on a specific use case.
