July 2021 Seminar : Ethical Artificial Intelligence
What is ethical, or responsible, artificial intelligence (AI) ? In essence, we can identify three concerns/issues : “the moral behaviour of humans as they design, make, use and treat artificially intelligent systems.” “A concern with the behaviour of machines, in machine ethics” – for example, computational ethics. ” “The issue of a possible singularity due to superintelligent AI” – a fascinating glimpse into the future as computers might ‘take over’. Is this still science fiction ?
This seminar encompassed important topics for Knowledge Management and Information Management practitioners. Topics included ‘bias’ in the machine, in machine learning, in the content cycle, in the taxonomy, in the text analytics, in the algorithms and, of course, in the real world. Critically, where do knowledge organization systems fit in and how can practitioners play a role in creating ethical artificial intelligence ? Should companies begin to develop an AI ethics strategy that is publicly available ?
