Facebook, Google And Other Tech Giants Discuss Ethics Of Artificial Intelligence
Artificial Intelligence or A.I. has been around us for so long. Computers have been with us for a long time and we take it for granted that we have A.I. Yet even with A.I. being around us its boundaries have not been discussed very well. Some of the industries' leaders are now getting together to talk about the ethical standards of artificial intelligence.
Industry leaders such as Facebook, Amazon, Google, Microsoft and IBM are getting together to discuss ethical standards that should govern A.I. They have formed the Partnership on Artificial Intelligence to Benefit People and Society, according to Business Insider.
The group plans not to only have people in the industry but would also include those academic and non-profit researchers, NPR reports. The group hopes to have research on A.I. that would be ethical, secure and reliable.
"We've been talking about this for years-informally," Guruduth Banavar, IBM's Vice-President of Cognitive Computing. He says the group has plans to publish and further discuss A.I. and what its impacts are on the modern world. The group has also dismissed concerns that its aim is to self-regulate without any government intervention involved.
There is always fear that computers in the future could be programmed to be much smarter than humans. Computers right now are becoming more advanced and are coming to the point where they could learn natively. The aim of the partnership is to reduce those fears by having regulations that would guide in the development of A.I.
It also aims to see how A.I. could be programmed that would not have unintended consequences. Examples of that would be when a Tesla model car failed in its autopilot test. Another one is Google Ads' algorithms were said to be racist and sexist.
Subbarao Kambhampati, Professor of Computer Science at Arizona State University says that learning algorithm will find patterns in a data, and it could lead to unintended stereotyping and discrimination since its function is to only study and analyze data. It would not naturally be able to tell the difference regarding race or gender nor be able to make moral judgments.
With the Partnership it hopes AI research will have ethics, fairness and inclusivity in it. It also aims to have more transparency and collaboration between people and AI systems.
The future of A.I. is wide, and iTechPost reports that in the future passwords might be passed through the body as well.
