In many ways, digital transformation is truly evolutionary. However, with great power comes great responsibility. Thus, the focus must be removed from functional skills and channeled to underline the ethical and governmental principles. Artificial intelligence can raise ethical issues such as privacy infringement and data security. These challenges must be addressed before individuals incorporate developing technology into their daily lives. Therefore, there is a need for a heightened sense of responsibility to mitigate risks that underpin the creation of such strong and potentially impactful inventions. In this article at The Ethics And Religious Liberty Commission, Jason Thacker speaks about the heightening concerns surrounding ethics and technology.
