Greetings COGNITIVE WORLD Community,
Smart cities using data captured by the Internet of Things (IoT) devices and processed with artificial intelligence (AI) are all the rage today among cities. Promoters tout the benefits these data-driven utopias, but as an urban planner, I tend to be skeptical of marketing hype. In the past, urban innovations painted visions that masked their real intentions and results. Urban renewal was sold as “garden cities,” but became black removal.
We hear a lot about how AI is progressing well these days and how it will help companies with all kinds of efforts from assisting customer-pleasing experiences to implementing massive automation efforts. Well, it looks like AI will make it this time and there is a low probability that there will be another AI winter coming. So now we all have to deal with living with AI. I have been contemplating working with AI in my life, so I question how will AI help me and how do I work with it?
Artificial intelligence is a tool humanity is wielding with increasing recklessness. We say it’s for our common good with machine learning hype equal to business profits. But what happens when we don’t have the code of ethics, laws, government accountability, corporate transparency and capability of monitoring the space to be able to achieve AI regulation?
The 128 most ethical companies for 2019 were announced this week from the Ethisphere Institute. The timing is fortuitous with the upcoming AI for Good, which I founded, global artificial intelligence dialogue including accountability, responsibility, transparency, fairness, equity and ethics.
Increasingly contributing positively to society and driving positive change are a growing discourse around the world and hitting all sectors and disruptive technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI).
A few months ago, a former work colleague pinged me on a messaging app. We exchanged one or two pleasantries about how she was enjoying her retirement. My first clue that I was talking to a bot came when she asked me for my home address because she had received a box of money from Mark Zuckerburg and apparently, he needed my address to send me my own box. I was eager to explore the capabilities of my new bot-friend, so I engaged it in German (for which I used Google translate in the background since I am not German fluent).
