Fears Around AI
Roboticist Ayanna Howard on fighting the anxiety surrounding the future of artificial intelligence.
AYANNA HOWARD: There are two primary public fears about AI. One is this aspect of job loss. And then the other aspect is AI robotics taking over the world. The AI robotics taking over the world I'm less worried about only because these AI and robotic systems are learning about us. And, therefore, they will have our values if we're good about it.
The AI taking over our jobs is also a worry because any time a new technology comes in, jobs are replaced. And so that's going to happen. But the positive, I think, is that there's a lot more concern about retraining folks now before we even have to. They are valid fears. But I think we have answers to them.
