Great article by John C Havens in The Guardian on how to program ‘human values’ into robots and AI and the complexities of mimicking human scenario’s.

“We can’t continue to move forward in an environment where our ethical desires in AI are ignored in the same way we’re tracked without direct access to the insights surrounding our personal data.

Ethics in AI shouldn’t be an afterthought, weighing risks for products already fully realised. The opportunity for innovation will come when we can inform the AI manufacturing process with programming based on the codification of our deeply held beliefs.

How will machines know what we value if we don’t know ourselves? That’s the question we need to answer today or else algorithms will continue to take decisions out of our hands, and we’ll have lost the chance to try.”
