Principles and approach

We’re committed to making sure AI systems are developed responsibly and in ways that warrant people’s trust.

The Microsoft Responsible AI Standard

Explore Microsoft internal guidance on how to design, build, and test AI systems.

Responsible AI in action

  • 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?
