House of Lords to launch its first public inquiry into AI
Share This Article:
The House of Lords launched the first public enquiry on artificial intelligence (AI) developments last Wednesday.
As mentioned earlier this month, the way AI has been developing in the last few years brings with it both high hopes for the future and various fears. Among them, that automation could prove damaging for some sectors of society.
In the attempt of regulating the upcoming consequences of such an exponential growth, the committee announced that the enquiry will focus on "the economic, ethical, and social implications of advances in artificial intelligence."
Submissions from all interested individuals and organisations must be received by 6th September 2017 and will have to answer the following questions:
- How can the data-based monopolies of some large corporations, and the 'winner-takes-all' economics associated with them, be addressed?
- Is the current level of excitement surrounding artificial intelligence warranted?
- What role should the government take in the development and use of artificial intelligence in the UK?
