Ethics as attention to context: Recommendations for AI Ethics

This document shows that current AI ethics guidance and initiatives tend to be dominated by a legalistic (or principled) approach to ethics. Although this brings value to the field, it also entails some risks, especially in relation to the abstraction of this form of ethics that makes it poorly equipped to engage with and address deep socio-political issues and practical impacts. As such this document seeks to complement the existing principled approach to ethics with an approach to ethics as attention to context and relations. It introduces this proposal and makes practical recommendations to promote ethical AI by drawing from an approach to ethics as attention to context.
