Reimagining Regulation for the Age of AI

#artificialintelligence

How should government and society come together to address the challenge of regulating artificial intelligence? What approaches and tools will promote innovation, protect society from harm and build public trust in AI? Artificial intelligence (AI) is a key driver of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Algorithms are already being applied to improve predictions, optimize systems and drive productivity in many other sectors. However, early experience shows that AI can create serious challenges. Without proper oversight, AI may replicate or even exacerbate human bias and discrimination, cause potential job displacement, and lead to other unintended and harmful consequences.


How AI changes the way we need to think about international affairs

#artificialintelligence

In the medium to long term, AI expertise must not reside in only a small number of countries – or solely within narrow segments of the population. Governments worldwide must invest in developing and retaining home-grown talent and expertise in AI if their countries are to be independent of the dominant AI expertise that is now typically concentrated in the US and China. And they should work to ensure that engineering talent is nurtured across a broad base in order to mitigate inherent bias issues. Corporations, foundations and governments should allocate funding to develop and deploy AI systems with humanitarian goals. The humanitarian sector could derive significant benefit from such systems, which might for example decrease response times in emergencies.


Governing Artificial Intelligence: A $15 Trillion Proposition – MeriTalk

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) could increase global GDP by $15.7 trillion by 2030, according to PricewaterhouseCoopers. The prevalence of AI in modern society is growing at a rapid pace–and the Federal government needs to keep up. On April 24, the Brookings Institution released a deep dive report on AI. After examining the multitude of sectors AI is impacting, the report offers steps the Federal government should take to get the most out of AI while still protecting important human values. In the realm of AI, China is outspending the United States.

Playing video games BENEFITS mental health

#artificialintelligence

Playing video games could have a positive impact on a person's wellbeing, scientists at the University of Oxford have claimed. Researchers at the Oxford Internet Institute accessed the data of two games, Plants vs Zombies: Battle for Neighborville and Animal Crossing: New Horizons, in order to investigate the relationship between game play behaviour and mental health. The scientists, who worked with Electronic Arts and Nintendo of America, found that players experiencing genuine enjoyment from the games saw an improvement in their mental health. Professor Andrew Przybylski, lead author of the study and director of research at the Oxford Internet Institute, said the findings show'video games aren't necessarily bad for your health' and there are other psychological factors which have a significant effect on a person's wellbeing. Scientists at the University of Oxford found that the players experiencing genuine enjoyment from the games experienced a more positive wellbeing.
