The Role of Social Movements, Coalitions, and Workers in Resisting Harmful Artificial Intelligence and Contributing to the Development of Responsible AI

arXiv.org Artificial Intelligence

There is mounting public concern over the influence that AI based systems has in our society. Coalitions in all sectors are acting worldwide to resist hamful applications of AI. From indigenous people addressing the lack of reliable data, to smart city stakeholders, to students protesting the academic relationships with sex trafficker and MIT donor Jeffery Epstein, the questionable ethics and values of those heavily investing in and profiting from AI are under global scrutiny. There are biased, wrongful, and disturbing assumptions embedded in AI algorithms that could get locked in without intervention. Our best human judgment is needed to contain AI's harmful impact. Perhaps one of the greatest contributions of AI will be to make us ultimately understand how important human wisdom truly is in life on earth.


How Automation will Transform Healthcare

#artificialintelligence

The health industry in the UK is under immense pressure, with staff shortages and funding restraints leading to unsustainable heavy workloads and low retention rates. It is clear that digital transformation is key to supporting healthcare professionals by relieving the administrative burden, reducing unpaid staff overtime and improving employee job satisfaction. The early August pledge of £250m for NHS artificial intelligence is one step towards realising this metamorphosis that has been detailed by Health and Social Care Secretary Matt Hancock's Future of Healthcare document and the NHS Long Term Plan. Artificial intelligence and automation already play a role in health. A highly publicised example of this is Ai-assisted robotic surgery to perform complex procedures.
