AI in government: considerations for ethics and responsibility

What are the problems associated with deploying AI ethically and responsibly in the Public Sector?

How do you begin with ethical considerations?

What do we mean when we think about ethics in AI? Is there a best practice? Is it like the Hippocratic Oath in medicine, where we simply have to have our best intentions? Or is it more than that?

It’s impossible to have a “one size fits all” approach to ethics. Every project must start from scratch. Does explainability solve these problems? Is unexplainable or complex modelling inherently bad?

If an algorithm is simply replicating what humans are already doing, and if there is some bias in society today, which unquestionably varies in all manner of ways, is that an issue? Will that bias be conveyed to an algorithm?

Would explainability of an AI system actually solve that kind of issue?
