    Democratizing AI 

    Three part series on ethics and artificial intelligence from Richard Whitt,

    Democratize AI (Part I)

    How to ensure human autonomy over our computational “screens, scenes, and unseens.”

    Democratize AI (Part 2): The Personal AI 

    a potentially effective way to challenge the one-sided proliferation of Institutional AIs is the introduction of human-agential artificial intelligence — let’s just call them Personal AIs. These virtual avatars would directly serve each of us as human beings, and our chosen communities of interest — including family, friends, and other social ties. Part III in this series (coming soon) will lay out a proposed action plan — the “how” — to help make these aspirations a reality.

    Democratizing AI (Part 3)

    The thesis is that not just billionaire industrialists deserve to have personalized virtual assistants. Ordinary people should have the ability to own a Personal AI, acting as a fully accountable computational agent to represent their self-sovereign interests. Without our concerted push-back against current trendlines, however, Institutional AIs instead will become the de facto norm of our time.

    Unknown Tech Brands Aren’t Like Groceries. Don’t Just Grab Them. 

    Unknown Tech Brands Aren’t Like Groceries. Don’t Just Grab Them. by Brian X. Chen (nytimes.com)

    It’s time to stop using technology and the internet as though you were shopping at a supermarket.

    It’s time to stop using technology and the internet as though you were shopping at a supermarket. In a grocery store, you can reasonably assume that the food labels are accurate and the products safe to eat, because the food industry is heavily regulated. The handling of personal digital information, in contrast, is loosely regulated. There have been scores of obscure companies baiting you with products that purport to improve your life — but actually capitalize on your data.
