WHEN IT COMES TO ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IT AMAZES ME HOW PASSIVE WE ALL ARE AT THE MOMENT, EXCEPTING IT’S ENTRANCE INTO OUR LIVES THROUGH THE BACK DOOR.
IF WE CONTINUE TO LEAVE ALGORITHMS AND HOW THEY WORK UNEXPLAINED THEY WILL UNCOUPLE US FROM REALITY. IF WE DON’T US HUMANS WILL BE LEFT WITH LITTLE OR NO AUTONOMY – AN UNREGULATED INTRUSION INTO PEOPLES LIVES.
It’s time we realize the pressure AI is putting on humanity. AI is by nature not conscious or moral: There can be no doubt that the development of artificial bits of intelligence raises ethical questions.
It is the engineers and other masters of algorithms who develop the principles and their boundaries, that need to be held to account.
It’s up to us to ensure that in the very conception of AI that is integrate upstream has inbuilt values of transparency, honesty, not just profit for profit sake.
We need to start asking ourselves seriously for what purpose will our data be used?
On which and whose power and what bases it will be used?
Are we heading for a digital dictatorship with all life choices decided by AI?
In order for the algorithms and smart solutions that are developed to be unbiased and discriminatory, the plurality of design teams is a key principle to keep in mind. Diversity must be at the heart of the issues of construction and the development of trust in AI. Integrating women, people from minorities or experts in the subject in question, helps ensure a technological world for all.
We must put the human in the heart of the machine, and democratize AI by making it accessible to all, and finally control the AI by ensuring the truth, security, and confidentiality of data and by regulating algorithms to ensure that they incorporate diversity and exceed its initial biases.
Our attempts so far are dismal:
The European Union’s new law giving people a “right to be forgotten,” is having exactly some of the effect its critics predicted:
The question to be answered by the EU Law is it censoring the internet, giving new tools that help the rich and powerful (and ordinary folk) hide negative information about them, and letting criminals make their histories disappear.
In fact, the ethical issues of AI question are it uses: For what purpose is the AI and must it be used? How to ensure that these technologies are not manipulated for purposes contrary to the values they defend?
What is needed is an AI shaped by everyone, NOT PROFIT HIDDEN IN THE
All human comments appreciated. All like clicks chucked in the bin.
