While Artificial Intelligence has great potential, it also raises challenges, notably around decision ethics. There is an entire set of ethical dimensions triggered by Artificial Intelligence that need to be analyzed, discussed, and reflected upon. There are many examples where inappropriate use of AI has resulted in unethical outcomes and behavior.

The current debate aims to open the discussion around business ethics in the new era of AI from interdisciplinary perspectives that develop new research and managerial insights.
