Better AI

Happy Monday.

That was some baseball game last night between the Houston Astros and the LA Dodgers at Minute Maid Park in downtown Houston.

The Astros go down 4-0 early, then come back and tie the game, and then the score seesaws back and forth all the way through the bottom of the tenth before Houston’s Bregman hit a walk-off single to drive in the winning run.

No AI-driven computer simulation could likely have foreseen such an insane game with that outcome.

Then again, we might out imagine what would might become of us if it could.

Which is why the Information Technology Industry Council, whose members include IBM, Amazon, Facebook, and Oracle, have listed five areas to improve the development of artificial intelligence.

According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, suggestions include designing autonomous systems that are consistent with international conventions and preserve human rights; prioritizing user safety; using large, representative data sets while identifying potential bias; and creating accountability frameworks to assuage concerns over liability when AI takes action after making a decision.
