Exploring the Debate around Artificial Intelligence: A Look at the Pros and Cons
- AI presents both risks and benefits
- Raul Rojas believes the biggest risks come from displacement of employment, false information, isolation of people, and privacy invasion
- Yudet Simons sees the balance as quite balanced and suggests focusing more on concrete dangers instead of long-term detriments
- Jana Stelker believes the recent attention is due to its accessibility and potential to replace white collar workers
- AI generated images can be used for lies and manipulation
- OpenAI’s CEO is concerned about the models ability to manipulate and provide interactive disinformation
- Professor Schmidt Huber is an optimist and does not believe in extinction.
The Dangers and Benefits of Artificial Intelligence: A Closer Look
- AI is increasingly making humans’ lives easier and healthier
- AI dystopia receives more attention than documentaries about the benefits of AI and healthcare
- AI supported weapon systems can pose danger due to lack of human oversight
- Artificial intelligence could outstrip human intelligence, but it is difficult to create an ethical compass
- Job loss from technology could potentially lead to social destabilization, however jobs can be created with new technologies over time
- It may not be possible to understand how algorithms arrive at their output in certain cases, yet regulation should still be put in place regardless.
Exploring the Growing Risks of AI: EUs Proposed AI Act, Chinas Different Perspective
- AI is being used by Google, Facebook and Microsoft
- AI is capable of processing language, images, sound inputs and more
- AI produces plausible content but not necessarily truth
- This can lead to Deep Fakes and other sources of propaganda and disinformation
- AI literacy is needed among users to understand how AI works
- Regulation will be needed to foster innovation while mitigating risk
- The EU is negotiating an AI act which uses a risk-based approach
- China’s perspective on risk may differ from the EU.
Exploring the Impact of AI Across Complex Value Chains: A Chinese Ecosystem of Social Points, Regulation, and Responsibility
- AI technology is being successfully developed and used in multiple applications across complex value chains
- The Chinese have developed an ecosystem of companies with the use of social points which watch people’s behavior
- Regulation for AI needs to be sector specific
- Responsibility for errors or misfunction needs to be allocated between the original creators and the applications
- Debate and smart rules should be established to reap benefits, mitigate risks, and prevent AI from taking over.
