AI applications can indeed be successful only if they create real value for us. In order to achieve that, we should take proper care that people understand AI applications, actively participate in their use and have reasons to trust them.
There is also a State responsibility to help the society to adapt to rapid changes in AI technologies, to understand the benefits and inevitable failures. Public policy could encourage to set proper limits on privacy protection or security on the one hand with the support for developing new technologies on the other hand.
Inevitable and fast advances in AI applications demand experts to develop new concepts for law and public policy. Who is responsible in an accident caused by autonomous vehicle or by an intelligent medical equipment? Who would take responsibility if AI applications promulgate racial discrimination or financial cheating?With the increasing integration of AI into consumer world, best practices and adequate regulatory regimes must be adopted.
We must take into account that AI applications may at some point autonomously choose to inflict harm on people as well as act for helpful purposes. There is no doubt that already AI algorithms are capable of making less wrong decisions than a typical person. Nevertheless, it becomes a real challenge to ensure the protection from discrimination based on religion, sex, wealth, race, sexual orientation etc. In the same vein, AI innovations may increase the abilities and efficiency of those who have access to them. It is therefore pertinent to evaluate if they support commonly recognized values and unprejudiced sharing of AI technologies benefits, or concentrate profits in the hands of a few.
Inappropriate regulatory solutions as well as misunderstandings about how AI works can lead to unreasonable obstacles of AI development and any innovation that would be with the potential to benefit everyone. Application of forum non convenience is not a proper answer.
So far, we apply the regulations on digital technologies that encourage to develop processes and professional staff to enforce privacy controls, that involve outside stakeholders, and adapt practices to technological innovations. Privacy regulation enjoys broad legal mandates but is also restricted by transparency requirements and meaningful enforcement.
AI-related innovations have already had an impact on societies all over the world over the past fifteen years, and more substantial advances are to occur soon. Current developments follow from the analysis of large data enabled by the internet, new sensory technologies and applications of “deep learning.” Due to the deep impact on transportation, education, healthcare, finances etc. AI advances must be employed in such a way that build trust and understanding, but first of all respect human and civil rights. Proper polices should ensure ethical, privacy, and security safeguards if we agree that AI is one of the most profound undertakings and one that for sure will soon affect every aspect of human life.
