Artificial Intelligence's White Guy Problem

  title={Artificial Intelligence's White Guy Problem},
  author={Kate Crawford},
According to some prominent voices in the tech world, artificial intelligence presents a looming existential threat to humanity: Warnings by luminaries like Elon Musk and Nick Bostrom about “the singularity” – when machines become smarter than humans – have attracted millions of dollars and spawned a multitude of conferences. But this hand-wringing is a distraction from the very real problems with artificial intelligence today, which may already be exacerbating inequality in the workplace, at… 

Forget the Singularity, its mundane artificial intelligence that should be our immediate concern

Whether current practices within Human-Centred Design permit designers to consider interactions and services in which non-human algorithms play a significant role and how approaches inspired by Object Oriented Ontology (OOO) may offer new perspectives for framing design activities concerning AI are considered.

My Algorithms Have Determined You're Not Human: AI-ML, Reverse Turing-Tests, and the Disability Experience

The past decade has seen an exponential growth in the capabilities and deployment of artificial intelligence systems based on deep neural networks, and these are visible through the speech recognition and natural language processing of Alexa/Siri/Google, and the promise of SAE Level 5 autonomous driving provided by Tesla and Waze.

Explainable artificial intelligence: A survey

Recent developments in XAI in supervised learning are summarized, a discussion on its connection with artificial general intelligence is started, and proposals for further research directions are given.

A Right to a Human Decision

Recent advances in computational technologies have spurred anxiety about a shift of power from human to machine decision-makers. From prison sentences to loan approvals to college applications,

The Diversity Crisis of Software Engineering for Artificial Intelligence

Most of the experts agree that the teams and organizations building AI products should be made more diverse, similar to Linus' law for open source development but applied to the development process of AI products.

Regulating by Robot: Administrative Decision Making in the Machine-Learning Era

This question is examined by considering whether the use of robotic decision tools by government agencies can pass muster under core, time-honored doctrines of administrative and constitutional law, and concludes that when machine-learning technology is properly understood, it can comfortably fit within these conventional legal parameters.

From Big Data to Deep Learning: A Leap Towards Strong AI or 'Intelligentia Obscura'?

It is argued that the growing relevance of AI in society bears serious risks of deep automation bias reinforced by insufficient machine learning quality, lacking algorithmic accountability and mutual risks of misinterpretation up to incrementally aggravating conflicts in decision-making between humans and machines.

A detailed survey of Artificial Intelligence and Spftware Engineering: Emergent Issues

The tipping points and evolution of AI are explored, the future impact that the advances of AI would have on occupations in various sectors such as technological unemployment is envisions, and the ethical and policy concerns involved in this upcoming AI evolution are tackled.

Semantics derived automatically from language corpora necessarily contain human biases

It is shown for the first time that human-like semantic biases result from the application of standard machine learning to ordinary language---the same sort of language humans are exposed to every day.

Explainable Intelligent Environments

A Humancentric intelligent environment is proposed that takes into consideration the domain of the problem and the mental model of the Human expert, to provide intelligible explanations that can improve the efficiency and quality of the decision-making processes.
