In the past five years, multiple spaces have emerged to facilitate discussions about AI, from new multi-stakeholder organizations like the Partnership for AI to research centers like AI Now and projects like the Ethics and Governance of Artificial Intelligence Initiative Oct 13, 2018 highlights & society In the past five years, multiple spaces have emerged to facilitate discussions about AI, from new multi-stakeholder organizations like the Partnership for AI to research centers like AI Now and projects like the Ethics and Governance of Artificial Intelligence Initiative. These diverse actors are researching how AI will impact society and exploring ways to reshape this ecosystem.Others are introducing public interest concerns into the conversation. Academics and public intellectuals like Virginia Eubanks and Cathy O’Neil have raised awareness around the role AI can play in the exacerbation of social inequalities. The work of these and other vanguards has had significant reach among academia and civil society, culminating in events like the AI for Good Global Summit and Data & Society’s Artificial Intelligence & Human Rights workshop. These debates have rapidly moved toward collective agreements and calls for governance like the participatory Toronto Declaration on “protecting the right to equality and non-discrimination in machine learning systems.” — https://points.datasociety.net/lets-avoid-an-artificial-intelligentsia-inclusion-artificial-intelligence-and-human-rights-3905d708e7ed?source=rss—-2488f66d2e39—4
