The world of artificial intelligence is expanding, and a group of AI experts at Northeastern wants to make sure it does so responsibly.
Self-driving cars are hitting the road and others’ cars. Meanwhile a facial recognition program led to the false arrest of a Black man in Detroit. Although AI has the potential to alter the way we interact with the world, it is a tool made by people and brings with it their biases and limited perspectives. But Cansu Canca, founder and director of the AI Ethics Lab, believes people are also the solution to many of the ethical barriers facing AI technology.
With the AI Ethics Advisory Board, Canca, co-chair of the board and AI ethics lead of the Institute for Experiential AI at Northeastern, and a group of more than 40 experts hope to chart a responsible future for AI.
Professors of Philosophy John Basl, Ronald Sandler, and Sina Fazelpour have all been named as experts for the new Advisory Board. Learn more about the initiative here.
