“We found a lot of boards didn’t really understand A.I., and they were asked to make decisions about implementing A.I. in companies without any tools to do so,” Kay Firth-Butterfield, the WEF’s machine learning chief, told Fortune.

An ethics toolkit for using AI in corporations is in the works by the World Economic Forum. Forbes reports the project will include how to implement AI best, issues management when deploying AI, and the value and ways of creating an AI ethics council for an organization.

Forbes says the WEF plans to launch the toolkit at its next Davos summit in January.
