Want to consider artificial intelligence applications and implementations from an ethical standpoint? Here’s a high-level conceptual view you might like:
Kolja Verhage wrote a report The Implementation of Trustworthy/Ethical AI in the US and Canada in cooperation with the Netherlands Innovation Attaché Network. Based on numerous interviews with AI ethics experts, Kolja presents an overview of approaches and models on how to implement ethical AI.
For over 30 years there has been academic research on ethics and technology. Over the past five years, however, we’ve seen an acceleration in the impact of algorithms on society. This has led both companies and governments across the world to think about how to govern these algorithms and control their impact on society. The first step of this has been for companies and governments to present abstract high-level principles of what they consider “Ethical AI”.
As AI systems become more prevalent in society, we face bigger and tougher societal challenges. Given many of these challenges have not been faced before, practitioners will face scenarios that will require dealing with hard ethical and societal questions.
There has been a large amount of content published which attempts to address these issues through “Principles”, “Ethics Frameworks”, “Checklists” and beyond. However navigating the broad number of resources is not easy.
This repository aims to simplify this by mapping the ecosystem of guidelines, principles, codes of ethics, standards and regulation being put in place around artificial intelligence.
I stumbled across this TED Ed YouTube playlist called Think Like A Coder. It’s an amusing 10-episode video introduction for those new to programming and coding.
The series follows Ethic, a girl who wakes up in a prison, struck by amnesia, and thus without a clue how she got there. She meets Hedge, a robot she can program to help her escape and, later, save the world. However, she needs to learn how to code the Hedge’s instructions, and write efficient computer programs. Ethic and Hedge embark on a quest to collect three artifacts and must solve their way through a series of programming puzzles.
Episode 1 covers loops.
The adventure begins!
Episode 1: Ethic awakens in a mysterious cell. Can she and robot Hedge solve the programming puzzles blocking their escape?
