Can we trust artificial intelligence?

The world is getting closer to the era of AI, but the question is: Can we trust AI? As a society, we must take a more logical approach to assessing the future of the technology and its impact on our lives. If we are to build trust in AI, we must look at the past and present of the technology. There are many questions we should ask, and we should consider these in order to build a reliable AI system

The answer depends on the results. For instance, we should be able to trust that self-driving cars will get us to our destination safely, while AI in the insurance industry must detect fraudulent claims and predict tumours. However, there are certain risks to AI, and we must ensure that the technology is transparent and trustworthy. Let's examine the main risks. And we must understand how the AI operates, so that we can make informed choices.

To build trustworthy artificial intelligence we must first make sure that it's safe. We can't trust AI if it can't make a decision that will lead to negative consequences. It's critical to have good engineering practices and laws in place to ensure the security of the technology. For example, we have to ensure that self-driving cars can safely bring passengers to their destinations. We need to trust AI in healthcare that can predict tumours and detect fraudulent claims.

The question of whether we can trust AI depends on the outcomes that we want the system to achieve. If the outcome is low-risk, we may be able to trust AI more than we can trust people. However, if the outcomes are high-risk, we should be skeptical. There are many factors that can undermine AI's effectiveness, but the main risks involve biased data, lack of transparency, and poor curation of data.

One of the major concerns with artificial intelligence is the lack of human control. The AI can make mistakes, but we can only explain them and hold them accountable. The issue of trust is also related to the fact that there are no guarantees, as far as the results of the system are concerned. Therefore, we must carefully consider whether we can trust the AI and its systems. While we cannot trust human-made machines, we can trust the algorithms used to make them do what they are supposed to do.

In addition to human control, AI should be able to understand human behaviour. It should be able to explain and accept mistakes, as it should. In order to create trust in AI, we must understand the algorithmic world and its risks. Cathy O'Neil discusses these issues in her book, Weapons of Math Destruction, and the dangers of Neural Networks in particular. 

There are many reasons to be skeptical of AI. There are multiple risks that could compromise the system. For instance, AI cannot be trusted on its own. It must be able to fulfil a task. If you're using AI to drive your car, it must be able to deliver you to your destination safely. In the insurance industry, AI needs to be able to detect fraud claims. In healthcare, it needs to be a reputable predictive model of tumours.

When it comes to AI, we must consider the risks involved in the technology. In a case of trust, the agent must be physically and morally competent to fulfil the task it has been given. AI must be competent to identify fraudulent claims, as well as to perform other tasks such as delivering a healthy meal. It should also be trustworthy to detect cancers. There are many more reasons to be suspicious of AI, and one should be careful when dealing with it.

If we want to be able to trust AI, we must consider its competences. It must be physically competent. Then, it must be morally competent as well. The same goes for AI in healthcare. It must be able to diagnose a tumour. This is a crucial step in building a trustworthy AI. But, we must also think about its potential risks and the ways that we can overcome them.
