Big Data and AI– Ethical and Societal implications
Are computer system designers (i.e. Software Developers, Software Engineers, Data Scientists, Data Engineers, etc,), the ones who will decide what the impact of these technologies are and whether to replace or augment humans in society?
Big Data, AI and Intelligent systems are becoming sophisticated tools in the hands of a variety of stakeholders, including political leaders.
Some AI applications may raise new ethical and legal questions, for example related to liability or potentially biased decision-making.
I recently gave a talk at UC Berkeley on the Ethical and Societal implications of Big Data and AI and what designers of intelligent systems can do to take responsibility, not only for policy makers and lawyers.
