There are debates about the use of artificial intelligence.
Sundar Pichai is Google and Alphabet CEO. It is one of the latest tech giant kingpins who made a public call for artificial intelligence to be regulated. Nevertheless, he also encouraged lawmakers to dilute enabling framework that does not put any substantial limits with artificial intelligence technologies.
Yesterday Financial Times published the article. There Pichai made headlines for the regulation of artificial intelligence. Nevertheless, he also suggested something different. He puffs up the risk for humanity of not letting get on with business as usual and to apply artificial intelligence at the population-scale. The Chief of Google said that artificial intelligence has the potential to improve billions of lives. Also, he added that it had the potential of the most significant risk to fail it. He thinks that the safest option for humanity is to frame no hard limits.
The leading suggestion is to manage risk levels. Nevertheless, there is no question from Pichai if facial recognition should be viable in a democratic society.
Pichai writes that internal combustion engines allowed people to travel beyond their areas. Nevertheless, it caused more accidents.
He says that the internet made it possible to connect with anyone. Also, it made available to get information from anywhere; simultaneously, it’s easier to spread the misinformation. He says that the lesson teaches them they need to be clear-eyed about what could go wrong.
The tech giant rebranded the entire research division for Google Artificial Intelligence.
Artificial Intelligence and the European Commission
The European Commission sounds very firm about artificial intelligence and big tech.
The tech-driven change is a key policy priority of the European Commission. The European Commission’s President is Ursula von der Leyen. She made noise about reining in tech giants. Ursula von der Leyen also published the article a coordinated European approach on the ethical and human implications of artificial intelligence with her first 100 days in office.
Last week in the Commission, there was a suggestion to temporarily ban the use of facial recognition technology in public places.
In particular, against any possible abuse of the technology, such a bun will safeguard the rights of individuals. Some think that such a far-reaching measure might hamper the development and uptake of this technology.
Yet, it is not clear which way and how the Commission will jump on regulating artificial intelligence. Nevertheless, even the lightish-touch version would be likely a lot more demanding than Pichai would like.
The Pichai wants a so-called “sensible regulation.” And he explains the term as a proportionate approach to balance potential harms for the especially high-risk areas, with social opportunities.
Pichai says that regulation can provide broad guidance while allowing tor tailored implementation in different sectors. The Google CEO wants to put blinkers on lawmakers. He doesn’t want them to know inherent risks into such a powerful and potent technology. He only wants to narrow down; an ill-intended subset of harmful and nefarious artificial intelligence uses.
Technologists have a big fear concerning that rules will them when artificial intelligence absolutely cannot apply.
Let’s see who wins the war: Pro-technologists or Anti-technologists.
