Key takeaways:
  • Corporate “ethical AI” programs have proliferated in recent years, but these efforts are struggling to succeed.
  • It is time for companies to shift to a regulatory compliance approach to AI, given the flurry of AI-focused regulatory activity over the past two years.
  • Ethical AI programs should be incorporated into existing compliance frameworks and should align with actual legal requirements.
  • This approach has proven successful in other areas—e.g., to ensure compliance with sanctions, money laundering, foreign bribery, and other laws—and the same will be true of AI.
