Ai.ethics Program

The exponential growth in the use of Artificial Intelligence systems, especially those based on Machine Learning, has revealed how this technology can be a true enhancer of economic activity. Simultaneously, these systems present serious challenges in terms of ethical implications, protection of human rights, as well as social impacts that need to be safeguarded for the benefit of individuals, society, and the economy. These challenges significantly affect the trust of various stakeholders.

In response to this reality, the Portuguese Business Ethics Association (APEE) and the United Nations Association Portugal (UNA PT) have developed the Ai.ethics program with the aim of supporting organizations that produce or use this type of technology to instill confidence in its application.
