Why companies must consider Fairness, Ethics, Accountability & Transparency when implementing AI programmes?
Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could that they didn’t stop to think if they should!” This iconic line delivered by Jeff Goldblum’s character in 1990s blockbuster movie Jurassic Park could be applied to every major technology innovation since the industrial revolution; change is disruptive, for better or worse. Real-world artificial intelligence has been a long time coming. Its approach has been characterized by a cycle of “false dawns” followed by “AI winters” when unmet expectations led to reductions in funding and research. When AI finally did go mainstream, the reality looked quite unlike the imaginings of sci-fi writers. Most AI applications in use today are comparatively mundane. They are algorithms built to do heavy data lifting to enable better decision-making and to drive operational efficiencies. It is a far cry from humanoids endowed with sentient intelligence that have dominated popular culture for decades.
