Survey Topic

Working Title: Ensuring Genuine Benefits from Artificial Intelligence

Working Description: Artificial intelligence has the potential to radically transform industries, governments, economies and societies. Embracing this potential, President Trump recently signed an Executive Order to launch the American AI Initiative elevating artificial intelligence to a national priority. However, as businesses and governments increasingly leverage this technology, it is important to recognize the potential it has to create or exacerbate a number of ethical, technical, social and legal issues. This panel would bring together policy makers, industry and civil society experts to discuss how maximizing the benefits of AI, while addressing its limitations, risks and harms.

2019-01-28 8:38:05 AM 2019 Submission 1 AI, blockchain, AR/VR, and more global access were among the emerging technologies mentioned in the Global IGF 2018-Paris video survey. AI Nearly 150 attendees at Global IGF 2018-Paris spoke in video interviews on which new digital technologies will create the best opportunities for a better world for all over the next decade. The responses are displayed on the Imagining the Internet site http://www.elon.edu/e-web/imagining/event-coverage/global_igf_2018/best_new_digital_tech.xhtml; and you can also view the video responses in a YouTube playlist here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QN-aZ2WkIoU&list=PLf2o-VmxcSBeCFHcszREBIVjpgea41l0C Responses by far the most-mentioned were AI, blockchain and more access. While the Internet of Things, VR and others were mentioned by some, many were looking forward to developments in AI and Blockchain and to promoting more access to the internet to more people globally.

2019-02-11 9:23:47 AM 2019 Submission 51 Formalisation of the contributions of machine learning and advanced statistical analysis(AI) in development of internet services. AI There seems to be many applications of ML and AI that are not made clear to users and this is not only unfair but highly dangerous, especially where systems are showing signs of serious bias in the data they rely upon for their proper and accurate operation.

2019-02-11 2:10:07 PM 2019 Submission 63 Artificial Intelligence & The Role of Government Regulation AI Machine learning and artificial intelligence/augmented intelligence (AI), powered by streams of data and advanced algorithms, have incredible potential to improve countless consumer and enterprise use cases. For example, in healthcare, AI can prevent hospitalizations, reduce complications, and improve patient engagement. Yet, applications of AI have also given rise to a variety of potential effects and challenges for U.S. policymakers to consider, including notice/consent, bias, inclusion, transparency and digital due process, and law enforcement access to data, among others. As AI innovations continue to be developed and even start to enter today’s regulatory processes, U.S. policymakers at the legislative and regulatory levels are considering whether policy changes are needed. This session should feature diverse viewpoints from across the IGF-USA community to advance the public conversation on the role government oversight should have with respect to AI. • http://fortune.com/2018/12/06/artificial-intelligence-regulation-government/ • https://issues.org/perspective-should-artificial-intelligence-be-regulated/ • https://theconversation.com/congress-takes-first-steps-toward-regulating-artificial-intelligence-104373 Private Sector
