Why A.I. Transparency Is Something That Concerns Us All

Why A.I. Transparency Is Something That Concerns Us All

Recently I had a good chat with my former adviser who mentored me throughout my PhD in ML and A.I. applications. Among the things we discussed was the need for transparency in A.I. systems, something that still leaves a lot to be desired, even if...

In the lowest form of knuckle dragging AI i worked with Lotus and built macros and programming to refine a construction companies estimating process. I was hooked on technology. Mainly because we could add a skill to another person that my experience had taught me through trial and error.

I had estimated so many projects and completed a percentage of them that i knew instinctively where each estimate should land. Unfortunately the technology i handed over to other capable folks, they were not that instinctive. The code spit out a number that they had not sense of experience to apply. Email was around so i didnt have to worry with this to much as i could review and edit the final product. We were a small business

AI offers some great opportunities but the implications from my experience is that the folks that use it, i am one of them, are totally dependent on the experiences of others who captured the best of the information and coded it into something i can use.

The debate for me is the fact that we are experienceing more code of others then we experience ourself. This is either freeing us up for greater things or dumbing us down to participants within the hologram. Time will tell us which of these is correct but i believe that our motivation is what is being sapped. The fight for knowledge is part of the learning. If google automates this process and removes the fight, does motivation go with it?

Who knows, but i do enjoy your posts on this topic. It is a socially changing concept that has many possible outcomes.

Great question Zacharias 馃悵 Voulgaris, but my answer is no. If we look at the structure of the brain and the billions of neurons forming it it sounds q remote possibility that we can over excel the "natural brain". Like human hands no matter what precision equipment may have they shall not parallel the human hand.

Hi Zacharias,

Great to hear from you. Truly, the world needs such instances to save environmental degradation, considering the BC tech. Would love to review the book by Steve. Have a nice day! :)

That's a very good topic. It's important to consider the environmental cost of BC tech though in the cryptocurrency arena... Whatever the case, there is definitely lots of potential in this tech. More info on this: Blockchainopoly book by Steve Hoberman (Technics Publications)
