Ethics — The Next Frontier For Artificial Intelligence

447 views

Published on

With one foot in its science fiction past and the other in the new frontier of science and tech innovations, AI occupies a unique place in our cultural imagination. Will we live into a future where machines are as intelligent — or frighteningly, more so — than humans?

Ethics — The Next Frontier For Artificial Intelligence

  4. 4. ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IS AT THE HEART OF THAT INNOVATION. ORIGINALLY FEATURED ON TECHCRUNCH. COM What President Trump will have to add to this conversation is, as of now, another great mystery.
  5. 5. ORIGINALLY FEATURED ON TECHCRUNCH. COM In a report released by the White House on the current and future state of AI, leading innovators considered not only the technology that will drive AI, but also the ethical considerations that must fuel its growth. How should we regulate automated cars to ensure public safety? How can AI be used to streamline government operations and provide new jobs (for humans)?
  6. 6. ORIGINALLY FEATURED ON TECHCRUNCH. COM In the next 20 years, experts predict that machine learning will continue to make great strides on a number of human tasks. If this innovation is done in an ethical way, we can build a future in which humans are not competing with machines or being overtaken by robots, but instead entering into a new era of collaboration that frees up the human spirit for more meaningful tasks that require emotional intelligence.
  7. 7. THIS IS WHERE PUBLIC POLICY MUST KEEP PACE WITH THE RAPID ADVANCES HAPPENING IN AI TECHNOLOGY. IT IS NOT UNREASONABLE TO HOLD DONALD TRUMP ACCOUNTABLE FOR ENSURING SUCH POLICIES ARE PROTECTIVE OF BOTH PRIVATE AND PUBLIC INTEREST. ORIGINALLY FEATURED ON TECHCRUNCH. COM
  8. 8. ORIGINALLY FEATURED ON TECHCRUNCH. COM As we create new technologies that will alter the fabric of our daily lives, we must simultaneously implement the policy solutions that will protect AI from going the way of sci-fi movies . We must take a democratic approach to future technology. We have to ensure that science is aligned with the public good.
  9. 9. ORIGINALLY FEATURED ON TECHCRUNCH. COM 100 technology leaders pled in an open letter that a Trump presidency would be a “disaster for innovation.”
  10. 10. ORIGINALLY FEATURED ON TECHCRUNCH. COM That one-fourth of entrepreneurs are immigrants, and tech companies are apt to recruit talent overseas, could bolster this theory considering Trump’s harsh stance on immigration. Nor does it bode well that Trump is likely to put national security interests over those of privacy.
  11. 11. ORIGINALLY FEATURED ON TECHCRUNCH. COM But fear not. Given that sectors like technology move globally and have power beyond policy, their path won’t much be hindered by a Trump presidency. Even better, advances in artificial intelligence are already supporting the notion of a future in which machines strengthen human perception, rather than deplete us of it.
  12. 12. AS FOR PREVENTING THE SCI-FI SIDE OF AI? That’s where policy must intervene, to rise to the challenges of machine learning. Though Trump has no clear policies on the matter as of now, we can only hope technological democracy succeeds as we move forward, whether because of or in spite of American leadership. We may find that while his administration is less concerned about “ethics,” per se, the prospect of a harmoniously automated future is a deal too good not to secure.
