How Tech Giants Are Devising Real Ethics for Artificial Intelligence

NY Times

I struggled to make out how much of this was hype – it promises a lot – but can it deliver?

Ethics in Business has been a key issue for a long time – as every business college has been saying – but not much has been done about it. The Roman philosophers were asking much the same thing. Can powerful people also be good people?

I liked this:

“The key thing that I would point out is computer scientists have not been good at interacting with the social scientists and the philosophers,” said Joichi Ito, the director of the MIT Media Lab and a member of the board of directors of The New York Times. “What we want to do is support and reinforce the social scientists who are doing research which will play a role in setting policies.”
