Underpromise, overdeliver

We need more realism in communicating AI

In 1965 AI-pioneer Herbert Simon predicted that “machines will be capable, within 20 years, of doing any work a man can do.” It was one of the first overpromises of AI and robots, but by far not the last.

In 2011 the IBM supercomputer Watson stunned the world by winning the tv-quiz Jeopardy, beating the two best humans of all times with a large margin. Ken Jennings, one of the two defeated humans, famously said at the end of the quiz: “I, for one, welcome our new computer overlords.” In the years that followed IBM cleverly developed the vision of revolutionising health care by using a retrained Watson to assist human doctors in making improved medical diagnoses.

Why entire society should be involved in AI

Posted by World Summit AI on Oct 5, 2018 3:10:44 PM

Catelijne Muller, President of ALLAI Nederland

It has become my mantra over the past 1,5 years: We need a human-in-command approach to AI. And this does not refer to technical control alone: Humans can and should also be in command of if, when and how AI is used in our daily lives – what tasks we transfer to AI, how transparent it is, if it is to be an ethical player. After all, it is up to us to decide if we want certain jobs to be performed, care to be given or medical decisions to be made by AI, and if we want to accept AI that may jeopardise our safety, privacy or autonomy.

Devin Krotman, Director of the IBM Watson AI XPRIZE

It's been nearly 14 years since XPRIZE disrupted the space aviation landscape by awarding the $10 million Ansari XPRIZE. The winning technology from this competition kick-started today’s multi-billion-dollar commercial space industry. Not only was this a landmark moment for commercial space exploration, but this first XPRIZE established a proof point for how large crowd-sourced competitions can push technological boundaries. Flash forward to today and XPRIZE continues to pursue moonshots across a wide array of domains — everything from education and renewable energy to women’s safety and health.
