Are you razor smart? Aided by a powerful machine? You’ll still struggle to answer this: at what point do the societal costs of not exploiting a transformative technology outweigh the conspicuous risks of using it?
Artificial intelligence (AI) has been one of the most significant technological advancements in recent years. It has revolutionized various sectors, including healthcare, manufacturing and finance. It’s also continuing to evolve at unprecedented speed. However, with this new technology comes a growing concern for ethics; it’s a field that’s clouded by controversies over algorithmic bias, the erosion of privacy, the excessive concentration of corporate power and the longer-term threat of a runaway superintelligence.
What are the benefits that might be lost by not fully using AI? How do we ensure that AI systems are profitable and responsible? Who decides its moral compass and what lens should we apply when investing? What companies are getting it right? With great power comes great responsibility - and as AI continues to evolve, we must explore its ethical horizons.
To talk with Eve Logunova-Parker, Dr. Jacquelyn Ford Morie, and Dr. Alessandra Sala is to be reminded of the intellectual excitement surrounding the technology. We’ll sit down with them on Thursday, May 25th, at 9 am PT for one hour. Expect a lively debate on the vital importance and dangers of ethical AI investment. Because as investors, we have an important role to play in influencing the technology’s positive direction.
Is this the ultimate general-purpose learning machine, one that can empower humanity to tackle the greatest challenges of our times: healthcare, energy transition and economic productivity? Is this to be the world’s most tireless research assistant? How should we proceed with caution?
