The application of Artificial Intelligence: Do we have a say?Just last week, there was a driver less train accident at Yokohama that injured 14 people. This morning I was reading an informative article about AI by Kaur and Sarna in Indian express.
We all are fascinated by artificial intelligence,we have seen it implemented. Just search for a particular item or topic, then you find tailor made recommendations for you popping up in Google. Yes, AI is currently being used in marketing, e-commerce, business management etc. We have had drive less cars and trains, we have also heard about crashes related to these AI based projects.
While behind the scene use of AI in marketing and e-commerce has led to large data capture and formulation of algorithms for better efficiency/earnings. This not only has given excellent results but also can be misused. Cyber threats and thefts by the unethical use of AI is very much a reality. A typical example is Facebook that has an algorithmic profiling and it has it's share of problems with AI.
Imagine all these in the Indian Context, lax rules and regulations and a flexible system of authority/governance that can potentially be made to look the other way.
Are we potentially exposed to more trouble than good from AI? Do we, the Indian public have a say?
