Vendavo’s Guiding Principles for AI

Alex Hoff< Alex Hoff May 4, 2023

Artificial intelligence (AI) is rapidly transforming the business landscape, offering new ways to collect, analyze, and apply data. The ethical implications of AI must be carefully considered to ensure responsible and effective use.

At Vendavo, we are committed to upholding the highest ethical standards in our use of AI, and have established guiding principles to help us navigate this constantly evolving field.

As AI technology continues to advance, we recognize the importance of regularly revisiting and updating our guiding principles to ensure we remain at the forefront of responsible innovation.

AI should strive to be explainable 

When developing AI systems, we strive for transparency and understanding, so you can trust the results you’re given. 

AI should be controllable 

Our focus on controllable AI ensures that our systems can be managed and modified as needed, giving users greater control over the technology they rely on. 

AI should be ethical 

Ethics is at the forefront of our AI development, and we strive to design systems that align with our values and those of our customers

AI should be responsible 

We recognize the importance of responsible AI and we take into account the potential impacts of our systems on society and the environment. 

AI should be inclusive 

We believe in inclusive AI, ensuring that AI systems are developed in a way that does not exclude any groups or individuals. 

AI should be secure 

We are committed to creating secure AI systems that protect user data and are resilient against cyber threats. 

AI should be unbiased 

Our focus on unbiased AI ensures that our systems do not perpetuate existing biases and discrimination, and that they promote fairness and equality. 

AI should be adaptable 

We believe in adaptable AI that can evolve and improve over time as new data and technologies become available. 

AI should be reliable 

We are committed to developing reliable AI systems that can consistently build trust and deliver accurate results with minimal errors. 

AI should be transparent 

We believe in transparent AI, where the workings of the system are made clear and can be easily understood by users. 

AI should be scalable 

Our focus on scalable AI ensures that our systems can accommodate growth and handle increasing data volumes without sacrificing performance. 

AI should be efficient 

We believe in efficient AI, that can process large amounts of data quickly and effectively, while minimizing energy usage. 

AI should be interoperable 

We prioritize interoperable AI systems that can seamlessly integrate with other technologies, allowing for more efficient and effective operations. 

Finally, AI should blend with human expertise 

At Vendavo, we believe that the pragmatic combination of AI and human expertise creates a powerful centaur-like entity that is greater than the sum of its parts. We are strong proponents of AI, but we also recognize that AI is not a panacea. There are limits to what AI can do, and the best results are achieved when AI supports what humans do best. Additionally, we know that protecting our customers’ data is of the utmost importance. Therefore, we are committed to blending AI with human expertise in a responsible and ethical way to create solutions that are both effective and trustworthy. Our goal is to build a world where humans and AI can work together in harmony to create a better future for all.
