Following up on the AI & Equality Initiative‘s first webinar on the AI and the future of work, Carnegie-Uehiro Fellow Wendell Wallach and Dr. Christina Colclough, founder of The Why Not Lab, will build on that discussion with a conversation about the future of the worker.
Dr. Colclough and The Why Not Lab are leading the way in advising government and industries that will be changed by AI on how to best use that technology to empower workers, and advocate for progressive strategies, approaches, and policies that do so.
Can artificial intelligence (AI) be deployed in ways that enhance equality, or will these systems exacerbate existing structural inequalities and create new ones? This discussion focused on several recent reports from McKinsey Global Institute (MGI) that delve into questions concerning the ethical implications of AI, the present and future of work in the United States and Europe, and the evolution of the social contract.
Joel Rosenthal, (President, Carnegie Council) discusses the tech response to the pandemic with Wendall Wallach (Carnegie-Uehiro Fellow; Yale Interdisciplinary Center for Bioethics). Topics covered include the use of big data and artificial intelligence (AI) as we move from the initial acute lockdown phase into the next phase. Among the questions are: How have international institutions used big data and AI in their responses to the pandemic so far? Has this new stress to the system highlighted the need for more agile global governance when it comes to emerging technology? Or has international governance of AI and other emerging fields of research been set back by the pandemic?
Wendell Wallach, consultant, ethicist, and scholar at the Yale Interdisciplinary Center for Bioethics, discusses some of the current issues in artificial intelligence (AI), including his push for international governance of the technology. He and host Alex Woodson also speak about Trump’s recent executive order, universal basic income, and some of the ethical issues in China concerning AI, including the Social Credit System.
Wendell Wallach, consultant, ethicist, and scholar at the Yale Interdisciplinary Center for Bioethics, discusses how the subject area of moral artificial intelligence has become vast with many subsets within it.
