There is a complex divide in artificial intelligence ethical research, all to the detriment of understanding the full impact of this technology.

Summary

This article by Kelsey Piper, writing for Vox, makes these points about developments in Artificial Intelligence (AI)  ethics: 
  • There are essentially two branches of AI ethical research, bias and alignment
  • Each approach seems to be mutually exclusive, which might not help to solve the complex ethical AI dilemma
  • Bias concentrates on racist or sexist exclusions within AI
  • Alignment is about understanding how AI might be able to manage human-based systems
  • Bias is a current focus to account for stupid AI, but as AI evolves, alignment should emerge
  • Piper argues AI ethics research needs to focus on managing the implications of modern AI, and AI alignment research on preparing for powerful future systems
