Say the Right Thing Right: Ethics Issues in Natural Language Generation Systems

Charese Smiley, Frank Schilder, Vassilis Plachouras, Jochen L. Leidner


Abstract
We discuss the ethical implications of Natural Language Generation systems. We use one particular system as a case study to identify and classify issues, and we provide an ethics checklist, in the hope that future system designers may benefit from conducting their own ethics reviews based on our checklist.
