AI at WAB - Parents: Ethics & Integrity

Ethics & Integrity in AI


As we move faster into a world shaped by AI and technology, it is critical to consider the ethical implications of the work, and to ensure that the benefits of AI are felt by all people and the planet.

Some key issues in AI ethics include: 

  • Equity & Fairness and the human costs of AI
  • Sustainability and the environmental costs of AI 
  • Avoiding Biases & Discrimination
  • Safety & Safeguarding
  • Academic Integrity & Fair Use of Imagery

"Academic integrity is a principle in education and a choice to act in a responsible way so others can trust us. It means conducting all aspects of your academic life in a responsible and ethical manner. The IB expects students to produce genuine and authentic pieces of work, that represent their own abilities." IB. 2022
