Making AI accountable: Blockchain, governance, and auditability

#artificialintelligence

The past few years have brought much hand wringing and arm waving about artificial intelligence (AI), as business people and technologists alike worry about the outsize decisioning power they believe these systems to have. As a data scientist, I am accustomed to being the voice of reason about the possibilities and limitations of AI. In this article I'll explain how companies can use blockchain technology for model development governance, a breakthrough to better understand AI, make the model development process auditable, and identify and assign accountability for AI decisioning. While there is widespread awareness about the need to govern AI, the discussion about how to do so is often nebulous, such as in "How to Build Accountability into Your AI" in Harvard Business Review: A healthy ecosystem for managing AI must include governance processes and structures.... Accountability for AI means looking for solid evidence of governance at the organizational level, including clear goals and objectives for the AI system; well-defined roles, responsibilities, and lines of authority; a multidisciplinary workforce capable of managing AI systems; a broad set of stakeholders; and risk-management processes. Additionally, it is vital to look for system-level governance elements, such as documented technical specifications of the particular AI system, compliance, and stakeholder access to system design and operation information.

It's Time For Startups To Use AI To Battle Tech Giants In Patent Wars

International Business Times

Technology giants such as Alibaba and IBM are eating startup innovators' lunch. These behemoths are seeking to devour even more market share by publishing patents at unprecedented speed in emerging technologies such as blockchain. As some of the richest companies on the planet, the corporations have the resources to manage the laborious search of existing patents and to overcome the outdated administrative hurdles so that they can file for intellectual property rights. Patents are definitely old school. Patent laws started with the rise of the nation-state, so they began in the 18th century and were then fully developed in the 19th century.

Unauthorized surveillance: It is well known that drones can be easily utilized for mass surveillance This is to be comprehended in setting of computerized advances that mean to reform our day by day lives, by having more point by point records about those lives. In the name of national security and fear based oppression, observation systems are used to track and profile the residents by the state too and private offices. By the ideals of their plan and size, drones can work undetected, permitting the client to screen individuals without their insight. For occurrence, there are drones with too high goals gigapixel cameras that can be utilized to follow individuals and vehicles from heights as high as 20,000 feet. They can convey gear for example, counterfeit towers, which can break Wi-Fi codes and block instant messages and mobile phone discussions without the information on either the correspondence supplier or the client.

Artificial Intelligence And Blockchain: US Patent Office Weighs In - Intellectual Property - Canada

#artificialintelligence

There is currently keen interest amongst tech companies, investors, and research institutes in both artificial intelligence and blockchain technologies. The buzz has reached corporations and financial institutions looking to tailor these technologies for their own businesses in order to keep pace in our increasingly digitized economy.-- This excitement has implications for securing patent protection -- Canada and the United States (as well as many other countries) operate on a "first to file" basis.-- That means you will want to file a patent application before other inventors monopolize protection for the technology in your area, potentially curtailing your competitive business advantage. The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued revised guidelines on what constitutes subject-matter that is eligible for patent protection (under 35 U.S.C. -- 101), effective January 7, 2019.

Editor's note: Noah Wang is co-founder and chief marketing officer of TOP Network, a Silicon Valley-based tech firm developing a business-friendly public blockchain and the world's first blockchain-based cloud communication network. The article reflects the author's views, and not necessarily those of CGTN. Earlier in January, at the annual World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Bloomberg released the 2019 Bloomberg Innovation Index, which ranks the most innovative countries using criteria including R&D investment, manufacturing capability, and patent activity. China jumped three spots to the 16th compared with a year before, beating the UK for the first time. However, Bloomberg index showed that China lagged far behind its innovative peers such as six-time champion the Republic of Korea as well as the U.S. and Japan, which secured their places among the top 10.


China bosses blockchain and AI patents

#artificialintelligence

In a healthy display of tech innovation power, Chinese companies have been dominating blockchain and artificial intelligence (AI) patents in 2017. According to a new study by UHY, an accounting and consultancy network, 99 patents (32%) from a total of 314 filed with the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) in 2017 were by Chinese firms. Rick David, chairman of UHY, comments: "Blockchain and AI could unlock significant economic growth over the coming decades, and businesses across the world are investing in making sure they benefit from that." He adds: "Where countries are lagging behind in areas such as these, governments should consider tax incentives to encourage increased research and development." While that Chinese figure is impressive – and note that all this data is from 2017, US businesses were close behind with 29% of blockchain patents, followed by Australian businesses with 40 patents (13%).
