During the past year, we’ve seen a lot of focus on ethics in tech, particularly as it relates to data and to artificial intelligence. Companies are hiring ethicists, publishing principles, and issuing press releases at a healthy clip. But what does it all mean? And what should business really be doing about technology ethics?

Industry analyst Susan Etlinger lays out the progress and issues in the industry, as well as some of the promising approaches coming from business, the public sector, and academia.
