Discussing the potential negative impacts of AI systems and how to address them has been the core idea
of AI ethics more recently. Based on this discussion, various principles summarizing and categorizing
ethical issues have been proposed. To bring these principles into practice, it has been common to
repackage them into guidelines for AI ethics. The impact of these guidelines seems to remain small,
however, and is considered to be a result of a lack of interest in them. To remedy this issue, other ways
of implementing these principles have also been proposed. In this paper, we wish to motivate more
discussion on the role of the product in AI ethics. While the lack of adoption of these guidelines and their
principles is an issue, we argue that there are also issues with the principles themselves. The principles
overlap and conflict and commonly include discussion on issues that seem distant from practice. Given
the lack of empirical studies in AI ethics, we wish to motivate further empirical studies by highlighting
current gaps in the research area.
