The 'justice league for AI': Tech giants reveal artificial intelligence ethics board (but Apple is NOT part of it)

Daily Mail - Science & tech

From job automation to fears of a robot uprising, the growth of artificial intelligence has spurred numerous concerns over the future of humanity, many of which have long been stoked by science fiction. But now, the tech giants of Silicon Valley are working to take on the most pertinent challenges before they can even arise. Researchers with Alphabet, Amazon, Facebook, IBM, and Microsoft have teamed up to create a new group, known as the Partnership on Artificial Intelligence to Benefit People and Society, to develop a standard of ethics for the development of AI.

From job automation to fears of a robot uprising, the growth of artificial intelligence has spurred numerous concerns over the future of humanity, many of which have long been stoked by science fiction. But now, the tech giants of Silicon Valley are working to take on the most pertinent challenges before they can even arise. Researchers with Alphabet, Amazon, Facebook, IBM, and Microsoft have teamed up to create a standard of ethics for the development of AI, with hopes that establishing guidelines can help to ensure that future technologies are intended solely for the benefit of humankind. From job automation to fears of a robot uprising, the growth of artificial intelligence has spurred numerous concerns over the future of humanity, many of which have long been stoked by science fiction. The group has not yet revealed its name or the specifics of its plans, but has so far met to discuss many of the issues surrounding AI, including jobs, transportation, and warfare, the New York Times reports.

Apple has joined an artificial Intelligence (AI) research group alongside the other tech giants of the world. The organization, called Partnership on AI, ensures that the technology is used ethically and for the greater good of humanity. The Cupertino company has been involved with the group since last year, but has formalized its membership together with Amazon, Facebook Google/DeepMind, IBM and Microsoft. Apple has joined an artificial Intelligence (AI) research group alongside other tech giants of the world. The birth of AI has made our lives easier, but the more advance it becomes, the more some worry about what the future holds.


Has humanity lost control of artificial intelligence?

Daily Mail - Science & tech

From driving cars to beating chess masters at their own game, computers are already performing incredible feats. And artificial intelligence is quickly advancing, allowing computers to learn from experience without the need for human input. But scientists are concerned that computers are already overtaking us in their abilities, raising the prospect that we could lose control of them altogether.

#artificialintelligence

Silicon Valley powerhouses are trying to calm public fears about the rise of artificial intelligence. A new non-profit coalition that counts Google, Facebook and Amazon as members is hoping to demystify the emerging technology -- one tech giants believe has the potential to transform their businesses. "They care how these technologies will influence people and [about] the social and societal consequences more broadly." Artificial intelligence is a field that encompasses many different technological developments. It's seen in innovations like self-driving cars, helping them navigate the roads, and in the personal assistant apps on smartphones that answer queries, organize calendars and more.
