Hastings Center News
Control and Responsible Innovation of Artificial Intelligence
Artificial intelligence and robotics are beginning to transform nearly every sector and facet of modern life. While the benefits and expected benefits could be vast, there are also concerns about privacy, accountability, transparency, biases, safety, and other issues. How can we reap the benefits of AI and robotics while mitigating risks and undesirable societal consequences?
Policy recommendations from a major international Hastings Center project will be announced on December 4 at two public events: at the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs in New York City at 8 am and at Yale University in New Haven at 4:30 pm. The project, funded by the Future of Life Institute, was directed by Wendell Wallach, a senior advisor to The Hastings Center and a scholar at Yale University’s Interdisciplinary Center for Bioethics. Wallach is an internationally recognized expert on the ethical and governance concerns posed by emerging technologies, particularly artificial intelligence and neuroscience.
