Microsoft responsible AI principles
Explore our principles for creating AI responsibly—and the questions we ask to help guide responsible AI development and use at Microsoft.
  • How might an AI system allocate opportunities, resources, or information in ways that are fair to the humans who use it?
  • How might the system function well for people across different use conditions and contexts, including ones it was not originally intended for?
  • How might the system be designed to support privacy and security?
  • How might the system be designed to be inclusive of people of all abilities?
  • How might people misunderstand, misuse, or incorrectly estimate the capabilities of the system?
  • How can we create oversight so that humans can be accountable and in control?
