It is measurable and easy 🔥

Leaders from Amazon, Stripe, Google, or Strapi are already using it.

Aware, an AI firm, is being utilized by major companies like Walmart, Delta, T-Mobile, Chevron, and Starbucks to analyze employee messages across communication platforms such as Slack, Microsoft Teams, and Zoom. This technology helps companies monitor employee sentiment, and detect harassment, discrimination, and other inappropriate behaviors without revealing individual identities, except in cases of extreme risk.

While Aware's eDiscovery tool can identify individuals for HR or security investigations based on specified risks, its analytics tool focuses on general sentiment and toxicity monitoring without personal identification. Critics, including Jutta Williams from Humane Intelligence, express concerns about privacy and the ethical implications of such surveillance, likening it to treating employees as inventory.

Aware's technology, which has seen a revenue jump of 150% annually over the past five years, analyzes billions of messages to assess workplace sentiment and risk, raising questions about privacy, worker rights, and the potential for misuse.

Goody-2 is a new chatbot designed to take AI safety to an extreme by refusing every request and explaining how fulfilling the request could potentially cause harm or breach ethical boundaries.

Its creators, including artist Mike Lacher, aim to showcase the implications of fully embracing the AI industry's approach to safety, dialing up the level of condescension in responses to highlight the potential absurdity. The chatbot’s overly cautious approach, while satirical, underscores the ongoing debate around the balance between AI utility and ethical guardrails.

Despite the humor, it also reflects genuine concerns about AI safety and the challenge of aligning AI behavior with diverse human values. Goody-2's creators, part of a studio called Brain, aim to provoke thought about the prioritization of safety over functionality in AI development, even as they explore building an extremely safe AI image generator with similar principles.
