Despite the intentions of their designers, the behaviors of AI systems may not always comply with existing laws, regulations, and ethical considerations. For example, they may pick up implicit bias from data or make decisions without complete understanding of the consequences. Owners and core users of AI systems must be aware of these issues and the potential liability in order to protect themselves, their businesses, and their customers.
