AI ethics and moving beyond compliance

The digital economy is at the center of a seismic change with the convergence of big data and artificial intelligence.

The oceans of digital information and low-cost computing power are providing endless marketing opportunities. The rapid rate of innovation is proving to be one of the most transformative forces of our time. At the same time, we are faced with ethical dilemmas challenging users’ digital dignity and redefining privacy norms.

EU considers the possibility of legislating for Artificial Intelligence

Karolina Mojzesowicz, Deputy Head, Data Protection Unit, the European Commission, said that the EU Commission is now considering whether additional legislation is needed for AI.

The EU Commission wants to consider all fundamental rights together. GDRP only addresses personal data – freedom of expression and non-discrimination are other aspects to take into account, she said.

AI is sending people to jail—and getting it wrong

Modern-day risk assessment tools are often driven by algorithms trained on historical crime data. Using historical data to train risk assessment tools could mean that machines are copying the mistakes of the past.

Populations that have historically been disproportionately targeted by law enforcement—especially low-income and minority communities—are at risk of being slapped with high recidivism scores. As a result, the algorithm could amplify and perpetuate embedded biases and generate even more bias-tainted data to feed a vicious cycle.

CoE publishes guidelines on AI

The Committee of the Council of Europe’s data protection treaty “Convention 108” has published Guidelines on Artificial Intelligence and Data Protection.

The guidelines aim to assist policy makers, artificial intelligence (AI) developers, manufacturers and service providers in ensuring that AI applications do not undermine the right to data protection.

Ensuring your business utilises artificial intelligence ethically

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is no different to any other modern data-related initiative in that its starting point must be data ethics. It could even be argued that given AI’s complexity and its inherent mission to surpass human calculation, ethics is of even greater relevance.

GDPR challenges of using AI

AI, machine learning, deep learning, neural networks – call it what you like, there’s a lot of excitement about the ability of software to analyse a lot of data, spot patterns, learn (sometimes independently) and to make conclusions and produce insights that are entirely new.

The Future of AI Will Be About Less Data, Not More

Over the coming five years applications and machines will become less artificial and more intelligent. They will rely less on bottom-up big data and more on top-down reasoning that more closely resembles the way humans approach problems and tasks.

Using huge amounts of citizens’ data raises privacy issues likely to lead to more government action like the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which imposes stringent requirements on the use of individuals’ personal data.

AI Diagnoses Genetic Syndromes Just From Patients’ Pictures

An algorithm is able to identify genetic syndromes in patients more accurately than doctors can — just by looking at a picture of a patient’s face. The results suggest AI could help diagnosis rare disorders.
