AI & Global Governance: No One Should Trust AI

Posted by Dr Joanna Bryson on Nov 30, 2018 6:38:35 PM

By Dr Joanna Bryson

 

No one should trust Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Trust is a relationship between peers in which the trusting party, while not knowing for certain what the trusted party will do, believes any promises being made. AI is a set of system development techniques that allow machines to compute actions or knowledge from a set of data. Only other software development techniques can be peers with AI, and since these do not “trust”, no one actually can trust AI.

Underpromise, overdeliver

Posted by World Summit AI on Oct 9, 2018 9:31:10 PM

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.
