AI has the potential to revolutionise the world. But professionals, researchers, regulators and individuals need to be aware of the ethical and social implications of the AI technology. These include risks of massive negative consequences – intended or unintended – if AI is not governed in a sustainable and ethical way.
Unintended ethical breaches are often a result of algorithms learning from historical data carrying prejudices. Also Ai is not neutral – values, unintended or intended are created by the programmer who in most cases have low skills as to how AI is scaling in a broader context. It could also be the result of immature AI, such as face recognition. In tests, systems have recognized male faces more readily than female faces – and perform better on lighter skinned subjects than darker skinned ones
