Hello! I am a PhD candidate at Maastricht University researching artificial intelligence ethics. I like to ask questions about the ethical development of data scientists and artificial intelligence/machine learning developers. My decision to study artificial intelligence ethics came after spending more than 15 years in corporate communications for a large health care system in the United States. I saw the future of health care as a technological pursuit, and I decided to join the community of professionals keeping the humanity in medicine by guiding the ethical use of AI/ML. My research is currently focused on identifying the internal and external morality of the AI developer profession.
Tricia Griffin has provided ethics consulting services for:

- The American Society for Bioethics and Humanities (ASBH) – Messaging for ethics certification programming
- The St. Anthony Foundation in San Francisco – Ethics as professional development workshops
