As the field of artificial intelligence (AI) continues to develop, these robotic, machine-learning innovations are capturing the imagination of our society. Take a look at a sampling of recent news stories: “Artificial Intelligence Could Improve How We Age” (The Washington Post), “Meet the New ETF Using Artificial Intelligence to Pick Stocks to Buy” (MSN), “Artificial Intelligence - Hype, Hope and Fear” (BBC), “Artificial Intelligence Software Will Be Helping the Los Angeles Police” (Inc.), and “How Artificial Intelligence Is Improving Magic Tricks” (Smithsonian).

Magic tricks aside, several TAP scholars are delving into many of the real-world implications of AI and related technologies. Five of the six blogs published this fall examine how the adoption of AI in our everyday lives impact safety, privacy, and fairness.

“What you call something can be a kind of implicit promise that the feature is capable of behaving safely under certain circumstances,” says Ryan Calo, who specializes in cyber law and robotics at the University of Washington’s School of Law. A judge or jury could interpret Autopilot or ProPilot as a pledge that a vehicle can, well, pilot itself, regardless of the fine print.

"For transparency’s sake and for our broader interest in our democracy, people should know the extent to which they have been played by the Russians and how a hostile state actor has interfered with, manipulated, and generally hacked our political process," Citron said.
