[D] Should I bring up ethics in my thesis?

For my master’s thesis, I’m working on a model that could potentially be misused with malicious intents. It’s getting a common theme lately.

I’ve got to admit that I don’t have a strong sense of morals and that I work on that project mostly because I love to see machine learning in action, and I don’t really care of the actual applications of my model. I intend to make my trained models public and the code open source. While I doubt any of it will actually cause havoc, I feel like the topic of responsible AI is looming to make a paragraph in my thesis. I don’t really like it, because I’d prefer to entirely avoid the subject. So far, I’ve only written

(…) is attractive for a range of applications be they useful, merely a matter of customization, or mischievous.

I feel like it would make me look bad to entirely avoid the topic when I’m planning to make my work publicly available.
