Emerging Economies More Optimistic about Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

According to a new survey, six out of ten expect that products and services using artificial intelligence will profoundly change their daily life in the next three to five years and half feel that this has already happened. These are some of the findings of a 28-country survey conducted by Ipsos for the World Economic Forum of 19,504 adults under the age of 75 between November 19 and December 3, 2021. "In order to trust artificial intelligence, people must know and understand exactly what AI is, what it's doing, and its impact," said Kay Firth-Butterfield, Head of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning at the World Economic Forum. "Leaders and companies must make transparent and trustworthy AI a priority as they implement this technology. At the World Economic Forum, we are focused on multistakeholder collaboration to optimize accountability, transparency, privacy and impartiality to create that trust. With the ability to solve many of society's pressing issues, we are focused on accelerating the benefits and mitigating the risks of artificial intelligence and machine learning. Only then can we gain public trust and benefit from the rewards of emerging tech like AI."

Which organizations do people think are most trustworthy?

#artificialintelligence

If you're anything like the people surveyed for the Ipsos Global Trustworthiness Monitor for 2022, you're likely to place most faith in technology companies and the least in social media platforms. The report – which gathered opinions from more than 21,500 people across 29 nations – found that after tech platforms, pharmaceutical companies and banks are the second and third most trusted organizations. People's perceptions of pharmaceutical companies and banks have improved since 2018, with both now seen as more trustworthy. These include public services, oil and gas firms, the media, governments and social media companies. Tech companies received a positive response from more than a third of respondents, with only 19% saying they do not trust these firms.


AI News Index: Worried About Government Data Collection For Covid-19 Contact Tracing?

Recent surveys, studies, forecasts and other quantitative assessments of AI highlight the current state of adoption of AI by enterprises worldwide, the future of deep learning, and consumers' attitudes regarding Covid-19 contact tracing. Americans are less willing to trust the government with private data than most other countries. Just half of those in the U.S. say they would be willing to share more data with the government to help track and contain the Covid-19 than they would otherwise. Only France (47%) and Japan (44%) had lower rates of willingness to share. Chinese citizens are most trusting, with 91% saying they would provide more data to the government.


FLI Podcast- Artificial Intelligence: American Attitudes and Trends with Baobao Zhang - Future of Life Institute

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence is already inextricably woven into everyday life, and its impact will only grow in the coming years. But while this development inspires much discussion among members of the scientific community, public opinion on artificial intelligence has remained relatively unknown. Artificial Intelligence: American Attitudes and Trends, a report published earlier in January by the Center for the Governance of AI, explores this question. Its authors relied on an in-depth survey to analyze American attitudes towards artificial intelligence, from privacy concerns to beliefs about U.S. technological superiority. Some of their findings--most Americans, for example, don't trust Facebook--were unsurprising. But much of their data reflects trends within the American public that have previously gone unnoticed. This month Ariel was joined by Baobao Zhang, lead author of the report, to talk about these findings. Zhang is a PhD candidate in Yale University's political science department and research affiliate with the Center for the Governance of AI at the University of Oxford. Her work focuses on American politics, international relations, and experimental methods. In this episode, Zhang spoke about her take on some of the report's most interesting findings, the new questions it raised, and future research directions for her team.
