QFM024: Irresponsible AI Reading
List June 2024
The June edition of the Irresponsible AI Reading List starts with a critique of
AI's potential for exaggerated promises in science and academia then heads
over to look at the societal implications of AI-driven job automation and privacy
concerns. An ongoing theme emerges for the urgent need for critical, informed
engagement with AI technologies.
We then take a look at the role that AI plays in amplifying societal biases,
privacy rights concerning AI profiling, and the mental health impacts of AI-
induced job insecurity. The discussion on Meta's use of facial recognition for age
verification highlights the tension between technological advancements and
privacy rights, while Citigroup's report on AI's potential to automate over half of
banking jobs illustrates the profound economic shifts underway in the job
market.
ChatBug: Tricking AI Models into Harmful Responses looks at how AI model
vulnerabilities can lead to harmful exploitation, pointing to the critical need for
even more robust cybersecurity measures when working with AI.
As always, the Quantum Fax Machine Propellor Hat Key will guide your

The Right Not to Be Subjected to AI Profiling
Based on Publicly Available Data—Privacy and
the Exceptionalism of AI Profiling: This article
argues for the new legal right to protect
individuals from AI profiling based on publicly
available data without their explicit informed
consent. It develops three primary arguments
dealing with social control, stigmatisation, and
the unique threat posed by AI profiling
compared to other data processing methods.
The article suggests that existing GDPR

Is Silicon Valley Building Universe 25?: This
article revisits John B. Calhoun's 1968
experiment known as Universe 25, where a
perfect society was created for mice.
Despite optimal conditions, the mice
society collapsed due to social
dysfunctions such as narcissism,
aggression, and disengagement. The
author draws parallels to modern human
society and warns about the implications
of tech-driven utopias created by Silicon
Valley.

Top 10 Generative AI Models Mimic
Russian Disinformation: A NewsGuard
audit found that top generative AI models,
including ChatGPT-4 and Google's Gemini,
repeated Russian disinformation narratives
32% of the time. These bots often cited
fake local news sites as authoritative
sources. The findings, amid the first AI-
influenced election year, reveal how easily
AI platforms can spread false information
despite efforts to prevent this misuse.

Researchers describe how to tell if ChatGPT
is confabulating: Researchers from the
University of Oxford have developed a
method to identify when large language
models (LLMs) like ChatGPT are
confabulating, or providing false answers
with confidence. The approach, which
analyzes statistical uncertainty in responses,
could help mitigate the issue of AI giving
confidently incorrect answers by determining
when the AI is unsure of the correct answer
versus unsure of how to phrase it.

What policy makers need to know about AI
(and what goes wrong if they don’t):
Understanding AI is crucial for policy makers
to avoid ineffective legislation. SB 1047,
currently being considered in California, aims
to regulate AI for safety but lacks the
necessary technical definitions, causing
potential issues. By focusing on the
difference between model 'release' and
'deployment', the article explains how current
legislative language could negatively impact
the open-source AI community and suggests
ways to improve it.
