Artificial Intelligence is beginning to transform nearly every sector and every facet of modern life. While the benefits of AI and robotics are vast there is also concern about privacy, accountability, transparency, biases, effect on employment, safety, use to manipulate behavior, existential risks, and other issues. How can we reap the benefits of AI and robotics while mitigating risks and undesirable societal consequences?
Please join Carnegie Council and The Hastings Center to discuss the findings of Control and Responsible Innovation in the Development of Autonomous Systems, a three-year project at The Hastings Center, a bioethics research institute that was funded by the Future of Life Institute. The project consisted of three groundbreaking workshops that brought together leading figures in the many fields of research that will contribute to the safety and controllability of AI and robotics. While other initiatives are approaching the challenge of managing the development of AI in a piecemeal fashion, this project was the first to tackle the challenge comprehensively by encompassing safety procedures, creative and far-sighted engineering approaches, and legal and ethical oversight.
