New White Paper Addresses "potential harm that AI can do"

• Activist Post

A new white paper seeks to help government and other groups build a responsible future for artificial intelligence as the technology continues to evolve, specifically stressing the importance of creating redress mechanisms that can handle flaws as they emerge.

Published by the University of California, Berkeley, the paper is titled AI's Redress Problem, and it joins an accelerating, cross-sector conversation about how to ensure that ethics and responsibility are part of artificial intelligence's future. Government is no stranger to this conversation, with New York City, for example, having released a 116-page strategic vision for how to responsibly benefit from AI. This new white paper encourages all stakeholders — government among them — to consider potential harm that AI can do, and to plan for addressing that.

It was authored by Ifejesu Ogunleye, a graduate of the university's Master of Development Practice program, and Ogunleye conducted this research at the Center for Long-term Cybersecurity's AI Security Initiative.
