Microsoft AI principles
We put our responsible AI principles into practice through the Office of Responsible AI (ORA), the AI, Ethics, and Effects in Engineering and Research (Aether) Committee, and Responsible AI Strategy in Engineering (RAISE). The Aether Committee advises our leadership on the challenges and opportunities presented by AI innovations. ORA sets our rules and governance processes, working closely with teams across the company to enable the effort. RAISE is a team that enables the implementation of Microsoft responsible AI rules across engineering groups.
We are putting our principles into practice by taking a people-centered approach to the research, development, and deployment of AI. To achieve this, we embrace diverse perspectives, continuous learning, and agile responsiveness as AI technology evolves.
We are helping organizations cultivate a responsible AI-ready culture throughout their businesses and put principles into place from implementation to governance with practices, tools, and technologies built on multidisciplinary research, shared learning, and leading innovation.
Fostering positive impact
We are committed to ensuring AI technology has a lasting positive impact for everyone by helping to shape public policy, contributing to industry working groups, and empowering those working to address society’s greatest challenges through our AI for Good initiative.
