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.
