AI Ethics Policy
Effective December 8, 2023
With the rapid growth of AI in the industry, we’re starting to see a lot of new AI code-generation and code-scanning tools in code hosting services, IDEs, and new code review products. For companies that have been working hard to address privacy and security issues, this means a number of new concerns.
While many of these AI tools show incredible promise and value, the downsides may not always be clear:
To help guide us, and to help our customers know where we stand, we’ve written this AI Ethics Policy outlining our commitments to ethical AI use, emphasizing transparency, privacy, security, and a People-First approach.
We see a benefit in using AI and other automated tooling to help humans better do their jobs, but that benefit does not outweigh safety and privacy concerns.
Any usage of AI in our products will be introduced thoughtfully and with care, aligned with our commitment to ethical practices. Our approach will continue to be guided by a commitment to the well-being and success of our users.
Beanbag and Review Board will always be People-First.
