Different kinds of ethical audit bots are possible, but who makes the choices and what are the implications? In this paper, we do not provide ethical/philosophical solutions, but rather focus on the technical aspects of what an AI-based solution for validating the ethical soundness of a target system would be like. We propose a system that is able to conduct an ethical audit of a target system, given certain socio-technical conditions. To be more specific, we propose the creation of a bot that is able to support organisations in ensuring that their software development lifecycles contain processes that meet certain ethical standards.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Keywords:||Ethics audit; Ethics assurance; Corporate social responsibility; Audit bot; Artificial intelligence||Other versions:||https://mccsis.org/||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Conference Details:||The 15th Multi Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems, Virtual Conference, 20-23 July 2021||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ie/|
