Ethical design is the future of good robotics and AI.
What does your ethics roadmap look like?
Not sure what AI/ML ethics or Roboethics can add to your business? Thinking there are ethical issues surrounding your technologies you haven’t clearly identified or addressed, but should? Targeted for busy senior managers and executives, our Thought-Burst Sessions are short, 1.5 hr mind melds. Our consultants deliver a targeted discussion to uncover ethical aspects of AI/ML or robotics that are directly relevant to your business.
Innovation may be leading you towards incorporating predictive algorithms, AI, or robotic systems into your organization, but these technologies pose unique ethical challenges and risks. Have you identified all of those risks? Where are the blind spots?
In this half-day, interactive Blind Spot Discovery Session, our team organizes and leads a stakeholder workshop within your organization.
This is our specialty. You’re developing, purchasing or deploying AI/ML or robotics technologies that you know carry ethical risks (e.g. privacy, responsibility, autonomy, bias), and you want to address those risks upstream.
Using our Comprehensive Ethics Assessment (CEA) process, we conduct internal audits of AI/ML algorithms and robotic systems you’re deploying to produce practical, actionable, solution-driven recommendations.

I approached Generation R Consulting because we’re making changes in the use of digital technology, which will affect many of our employees. We want to do this well by continuing to value the in-depth knowledge of our employees while we supplement it with data and advanced analytics.
Generation R Consulting helped us by systematically assessing the technical, organizational and value impacts associated with the introduction of new technology.
One element of the service that I found most valuable was the effort made to restate the findings in the business language of our company. This makes the findings actionable and inspires employees and change leaders alike.
I believe that good corporate governance requires those of us using AI in service to our clients to do an ethics review: not just because future regulatory environments will require it, but because it encompasses every aspect of the use of the tools – from deployment for employees, to impact on clients and stakeholders, to enterprise risk management. Generation R did an outstanding assessment for us which advanced our thinking around AI by years — an outstanding return on investment.
