Can and will AI companies other R&D organizations self-police?
Elon Musk, Microsoft, Google, Facebook, IBM, and other leaders in AI development claim to support close examination of ethical, risk-related, and other factors affecting the public.
No, AI companies absolutely will NOT self-regulate. As goes equally for human genetic engineering enterprises, science-based governmental agencies with heavy enforcement powers (where are you, Jack Bauer? In custody, in Moscow, I guess) will be needed to shut down a plethora of overt and covert rogue operations, I believe. — Best, PJW
I agree, but the current direction (in the U.S.) appears to be the tearing down of regulatory entities and co-opting of government to increase corporatist power.
