Do It For The Culture: Ethics & Diversity in AI

“I do this for the culture…
Show them how to move in a room full of vultures.” – Jay-Z

Individual ethical habits among like-minded individuals creates an Ethical Culture. Ethical AI creates a culture of trust among employees, clients, consumers and society-at-large. That trust generates a supreme competitive advantage against companies who do not have Ethics at the core of their business.

“I spoke some things into the universe and they appeared
Find your purpose or you’re wasting air.” – Nipsey Hussle

AI companies have to envision a desirable future state of the world. Desire builds the will. Will creates the habits and actions necessary to get results.
