Artificial Intelligence in Society


This report from OECD helps build a shared understanding of AI in the present and near-term by mapping the AI technical, economic, use case and policy landscape and identifying major public policy considerations. It is also intended to help co-ordination and consistency with discussions in other national and international fora.

I would be glad to form a research team on "nudging ethics" which may include use of nudging for healthcare during Corona crisis.

I think it may be a good idea. If you deem it appropriate, and finally the group formalizes it, I would like you to count on me. I have been working for almost 2 years in this field. And medicine (medical image) also concerns me.
A greeting.

I have been working in the field of Machine Ethics for the past two years, and I consistently find that policy making assumes that AI 'knows' more than it does. prediction of cancer to prediction of social choices, the  spectrum is quite vast and AI is nowhere closeto being as omnipotent as we think [https://www.cs.princeton.edu/~arvindn/talks/MIT-STS-AI-snakeoil.pdf]. Unfortunately, the hype also leads to trust, i.e. policy makers start to trust AI [or a machine] that is suitably complicated. I fear that AI can be used as an excuse ['the-computer-says-so' syndrome] to infringe on hard-won civil and human rights , in the name of keeping up economically.  Right now, we don't even know what kinds of ethics an AI can have! I organize an annual workshop on this topic: https://aristotle.ucd.

Nudging ethics is a worrisome topic, especially if this nudging is being delegated to an AI. 


I would be happy to join a team that does some research in this area.
