Commission on Artificial Intelligence to be Established

Concerns Over Digital Ethics and Artificial Technology Have Some Experts Calling for Government Oversight of AI

SHOBITH | The Transhumanist

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is set to be the future of technology and almost every field because of a wide range of implications it offers. It ensures to bring a revolution in every field possible by introducing new techniques. However, despite the intensity of AI, the governments around the world are not taking AI seriously, stated the House of Commons Science and Technology Committee. The committee has urged the creation of a Commission on Artificial Intelligence.

The legal, social and ethical implications that AI encounters with are required to be analysed and scrutinised. The government, however, lacks any coherent strategy to respond to such ethical and social dilemmas.

The House of Commons Science and Technology Committee has recommended establishing ‘Commission on Artificial Intelligence‘ at the Alan Turing Institute. The purpose of the Commission is to study the social, ethical, and legal implications of the rapid recent developments in AI and potential developments in future.

The recommendation was made based on the investigation made. The investigation focused on the possible impact that AI can have on society with special regard to the workplace.

“Government leadership in the fields of robotics and AI has been lacking,” says acting chair of the Science and Technology Committee, Dr Tania Mathias MP.

The committee asserts that through the commission the government has to take up the initiative of engaging in the development and application of AI. It noted that the commission should be closely coordinated with the Council of Data Ethics, which is being set up following a previous report by MPs.

The committee further states that the membership of the commission should be inclusive. It has to include people from the government, NGOs, computer and natural scientists, engineers, expertise in law, social science, and philosophy besides people related to the field of robotics and AI.

The committee based on the inputs from a wide range of experts stated that it is necessary for the government to make necessary changes in the education and training systems so as to bring it in line with the changes in technology and AI.

The report stated, “It is disappointing that the government still has not published its digital strategy nor set out its plans for equipping the future workforce with the digital skills it needs to flourish.”

In contrast, the private companies are taking a lead in the development of AI. Mathias said, “While it is encouraging that the [private] sector is thinking about the risks and benefits of AI, this does not absolve the government of its responsibilities.”

    I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

    When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Thanks!

    1/2/2017 In my view, americanintelligencereport.com does a great job of covering subjects of this kind. Even if frequently deliberately contentious, the information is generally well researched and challenging.
