Public trust in AI varies greatly depending on the application, according to researchers. The rise of artificial intelligence (AI) in society prompted University of Tokyo researchers to investigate public attitudes toward AI ethics. Their findings quantify how different demographics and ethical scenarios influence these attitudes. The team developed an octagonal visual metric, similar to a rating system, as part of this research, which could be useful to AI researchers who want to know how their work is perceived by the general public. Many people believe that technology's rapid advancement outpaces that of the social structures that implicitly guide and regulate it, such as law and ethics.

Level 5, part of Woven Planet, is developing self-driving technology using a machine-learned approach to create safe mobility for everyone. Our goal is to build level 4 autonomous vehicles to improve personal transportation on a global scale. Woven Planet is a software-first subsidiary of Toyota whose vision is to create mobility of people, goods, and information that everyone can enjoy and trust. As part of Woven Planet, Level 5 has the backing of one of the world's largest automakers, the talent to deliver on our goal, and the opportunity for near-term product impact and revenue--a combination rarely seen in the AV industry. Level 5 is looking for doers and creative problem solvers to join us in improving mobility for everyone with self-driving technology.


Measuring Trust in Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Prompted by the increasing prominence of artificial intelligence (AI) in society, University of Tokyo researchers investigated public attitudes toward the ethics of AI. Their findings quantify how different demographics and ethical scenarios affect these attitudes. As part of this study, the team developed an octagonal visual metric, analogous to a rating system, which could be useful to AI researchers who wish to know how their work may be perceived by the public. Many people feel the rapid development of technology often outpaces that of the social structures that implicitly guide and regulate it, such as law or ethics. AI in particular exemplifies this as it has become so pervasive in everyday life for so many, seemingly overnight.

Data reveals people do not trust AI weapons

New Tokyo based research finds that public trust in AI varies widely depending on the person and application. Researchers at the University of Tokyo have shown how different demographics and ethical scenarios affect attitudes towards artificial intelligence. The complexity of Artificial Intelligence compared to more familiar technology can seem frightening, unfamiliar technology can breed fear and mistrust. Technology progresses at such a rapid pace that it threatens to move past the laws put in place to regulate it therefore for the study, the team developed an octagonal visual metric similar to that of a rating system, in order to fully understand the intricacies of public opinion on the safety of AI. There were two questions the team sought to answer through their surveys: how attitudes change depending on the scenario presented to a respondent, and how the demographic of the respondent themselves changed attitudes.

SoftBank Makes $146M Bet on AI Firm Qraft

#artificialintelligence

SoftBank is investing $146 million in the South Korean artificial intelligence (AI) company Qraft Technologies Inc. to help it expand into the U.S. As The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) reported Monday (Jan. The companies declined to disclose Qraft's valuation, per the WSJ. SoftBank, based in Tokyo, is one of the largest tech investors in the world, managing a portfolio in excess of $100 billion. Qraft has 50 employees, most of whom work on the company's AI project and who own about a third of the business, with outside investors controlling the rest. "SoftBank [now] makes up a large portion of that," Robert Nestor, the U.S. CEO of Qraft., told the WSJ.

Founded in 2016 by its chief executive, Marcus Hyung-Sik Kim, the Seoul-based firm plans to use the investment to further its expansion into the U.S. and other key markets, said Robert Nestor, Qraft's U.S. CEO. The companies declined to disclose Qraft's valuation. Tokyo's SoftBank is one of the world's largest investors in technology companies, with its Vision Fund and a successor managing a portfolio of more than $100 billion. Asset managers, once skeptical of the value of AI and mindful of their staffs' concerns that the programs would replace human stock- and bond-pickers, are now looking to add data-analysis tools that can help them combat chronic underperformance and justify the fees they charge investors. The industry's awakening has triggered an arms race to hire the programmers who can develop those tools and spot the market signals hidden in the data.
