What AI Experts Fear from AI

#artificialintelligence

These are some of the outcomes that AI developers fear will come from their work, according to a new report issued today by the Deloitte AI Institute and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Titled "Investing in trustworthy AI," the 82-page report from Deloitte and the Chamber Technology Engagement Center sought to identify the concerns that technology experts have when it comes to the adoption of AI, as well as highlight the impact that government investment in AI can have on the emerging technology. Algorithmic bias and a lack of humans in decision loops are concerns for about two-thirds of the 250 people who participated in the survey. Another 60% identified "rogue or unanticipated behavior" of autonomous agents as a threat, while 56% said the lack of explainability of algorithms was a concern. "Perceived, and actual, discrimination by AI systems undermines the confidence individuals have in whether they are being given a fair opportunity when AI is involved," the report stated.


Why building employee trust is the next frontier for AI in HR

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence--long predicted to be a game-changer in HR--already is making its mark on the industry. AI is fueling new workplace innovations, improving employee safety and reducing low-value or repetitive work, yielding direct workplace benefits, especially in the area of engagement and productivity. Yet, according to Beena Ammanath, executive director of the Deloitte AI Institute, a key factor in achieving success with AI involves building trust among businesses and employees that adopting it will be good for the economy and society. A recent survey from the Deloitte AI Institute, which connects organizations, think tanks and government leaders on all aspects of AI, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce found a deep interest in the ethical use of AI innovation and investments among the 250 respondents--mostly senior leaders involved in AI projects at primarily large, U.S-based businesses across a range of industries. The survey specifically included those in HR roles, along with IT/data and research and development, "because of their likely exposure to AI technologies and their impacts," the authors wrote.



AI-driven strategies are becoming mainstream, survey finds

#artificialintelligence

Deloitte today released the fourth edition of its State of AI in the Enterprise report, which surveyed 2,857 business decision-makers between March and May 2021 about their perception of AI technologies. Few organizations claim to be completely AI-powered, the responses show, but a significant percentage are beginning to adopt practices that could get them there. In the survey, Deloitte explored the transformations happening inside firms applying AI and machine learning to drive value. During the pandemic, digitization efforts prompted many companies to adopt AI-powered solutions to back-office and customer-facing challenges. A PricewaterhouseCoopers whitepaper found that 52% percent of companies have accelerated their AI adoption plans, with global spending on AI systems set to jump from $85.3 billion in 2021 to over $204 billion in 2025, according to IDC.
