Artificial Intelligence and the ‘Good Society’: The US, EU, and UK Approach by Corinne J.N. Cath, Sandra Wachter, Brent Mittelstadt, Mariarosaria Taddeo, Luciano Floridi :: SSRN

In October 2016, the White House, the European Parliament, and the UK House of Commons each issued a report outlining their visions on how to prepare society for the widespread use of AI. In this article, we provide a comparative assessment of these three reports in order to facilitate the design of policies favourable to the development of a ‘good AI society’. We examine how each report addresses the following three topics: the development of a ‘good AI society’; the role and responsibility of the government, the private sector, and the research community in pursuing such a development; and where the recommendations to support such a development may be in need of improvement. Our analysis concludes that the reports address adequately various ethical, social, and economic topics, but come short of providing an overarching political vision and long-term strategy for the development of a ‘good AI society’. In order to contribute to fill this gap, in the conclusion we suggest a two-pronged approach.

Artificial Intelligence: The Next Big Thing in Government

The new approach, which saved the agency time and money, was essentially a form of artificial intelligence, or cognitive computing. Unlike big data and analytics, which work off structured data that takes time to collect and analyze, this program was able to quickly calculate possible health problems by reading unstructured data – words and phrases. That’s an exciting advance in computing capability, and it’s something that experts and state and local CIOs alike see as the next big thing in government technology. Artificial intelligence has received a ton of publicity already. There’s IBM’s Watson, which famously beat two all-time “Jeopardy!” champions, and then there’s – to a lesser extent – Siri or Cortana on our smartphones. “A.I. is about making better, more informed decisions, and automating those decisions,” says Daniel Castro, director of the Center of Data Innovation. When it’s used in the right way, he says, A.I. has the potential to make government substantially more efficient and citizen-friendly. The private sector is already experimenting with a form of A.I. known as “Chatbots” to automate and improve customer service. Criminal justice and public safety is another area that could benefit from A.I. Following the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013, image recognition software combed through hundreds of thousands of images and videos taken at the detonation site to find clues. The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy has held a series of workshops this year to explore how A.I. could further be used in law enforcement. The possibilities thrown out included having A.I. develop better questions during parole screenings and analyze police body camera video. Castro thinks A.I. that is embedded in robotics, such as self-driving vehicles, could be a big opportunity for government as well. Of course, there’s still a long way to go and a lot to work out before A.I. becomes more commonplace in government. For one thing, there’s a lack of skilled analysts who know how to work with A.I. For another, there’s the fear that artificial intelligence will strip away jobs, which has made some hesitant to experiment with it.

10 Examples of Artificial Intelligence You are Using in Daily Life

Artificial intelligence might seem like the realm of science fiction, but you might be surprised to find out that you’re already using it. Here are 10 examples of artificial intelligence that you’re already using every day. The AI detailed in this article learned to play simple video games, and Google will be testing that same intelligence in driving games before moving onto the road. The idea is that, eventually, the car will be able to “Look” at the road ahead of it and make decisions based on what it sees, helping it learn in the process. Lighting is another place where you might see basic artificial intelligence; by setting defaults and preferences, the lights around your house might adjust based on where you are and what you’re doing; dimmer for watching TV, brighter for cooking, and somewhere in the middle for eating, for example. Your smartphone, your car, your bank, and your house all use artificial intelligence on a daily basis; sometimes it’s obvious what its’ doing, like when you ask Siri to get you directions to the nearest gas station.
