Over the past several decades, artificial intelligence (AI) has transformed into one of the most exciting and challenging issues of our time. At REWE Group, we develop and use AI applications in order to better meet the wishes and needs of our customers, optimise logistics processes, make work easier for employees and much more.
But the possibilities represented by AI also mean we must assume greater digital responsibility and ensure that AI is used ethically. We believe the development of artificial intelligence projects require forward-looking and reliable guidelines. To this end, we have developed the REWE digital AI Manifesto.
This document was written together with our colleagues in Technology, Research & Innovation, Communications and Public Affairs, and it provides clear, easy-to-understand recommendations for developing and using AI and AI applications. Our handy manifesto is intended to help software engineers to develop sustainable and responsible systems. In addition, we maintain an awareness of the potential risks of AI if improperly used and developed. The manifesto is intended to avoid such risks. After all, ethical questions are just as important to us as technological or economic progress.
