Guidling the Development of AI

Guiding the Development of AI

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been around for decades, but has only recently begun to fulfill the promise of truly replicating human-like decision making. The Information Age has generated enormous quantities of data and modern technology has given us unprecedented power to ingest and analyze this data. AI systems today control airplanes, financial and insurance systems, and even criminal sentencing recommendations. We can use AI to conduct law enforcement and intelligence gather operations. AI has even generated audio, video and photos that are completely fake but nearly impossible for a human to detect. Our guest today, Lorraine Kisselburgh, is working with international organization to define common-sense guidelines for the creation and use of these AI systems, to maximize potential and minimize abuse.
