Big Data analytics, machine learning, and other emerging artificial intelligence (AI) technologies have, in a very short time, become astonishingly good at helping companies see, and react to, patterns in data they would otherwise have missed. More and more, however, these new patterns carry difficult ethical choices.

I believe these messages need to be more widely communicated — please consider downloading the executive brief Teaching Machines Right from Wrong and sharing it inside your organization.
