A series of recent popular sci-fi movies have involved artificial intelligence, and there have been concerns that artificial intelligence could be maliciously manipulated or “mutated” in unpredictable environments to harm humans. Now, some experts are promoting the development of humanized AI, hoping to play the positive role of AI more effectively.
On March 4, the “Global Conference on Promoting Humanized Artificial Intelligence” was held at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris. Nearly 1,300 representatives from the public and private sectors, the technical community, international and regional organizations, and civil society attended the conference. Participants believed that artificial intelligence has the potential to change the world and help humanity meet complex social and economic challenges. All parties should continue to work together to develop AI in a humane way and realize its potential.
Speaking at the opening ceremony, UNESCO Director-General Audrey Azoulay said that artificial intelligence is the new frontier of human nature, and it is necessary to ensure that artificial intelligence develops in a human-centred direction. She said that artificial intelligence plays a key role in education, technology, health and sustainable development. At the same time, artificial intelligence also poses a series of complex challenges for humans, especially in terms of ethics, human rights and security. There is currently no international ethical framework for all AI development and applications, and international regulatory tools are essential.
OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurria said AI has no value if it does not have human-centred values and inclusiveness. He called for the development of artificial intelligence to be more human and less artificial. Guria also emphasized the role of artificial intelligence in promoting economic growth, pointing out that artificial intelligence can increase labor productivity of enterprises by up to 40%. In the first half of 2018, emerging companies around the world invested 12% of their funds in the research and development or application of artificial intelligence.
Liu Shengyi, senior executive vice president of Tencent, said that the current challenges of artificial intelligence to human beings come from three levels: philosophy, ethics and practice. “We should now create a global guiding framework standard. Only in this way can we maximize the potential of human algorithm evolution in the era of digital civilization.” Liu Shengyi said that accelerating the promotion of relevant legislation on global artificial intelligence has become a major issue for mankind. .
Many countries have or are developing strategies for AI development, and the UAE is one of them. The country’s Minister of State for Artificial Intelligence, Omar Uleima, said at the meeting that the United Arab Emirates released an artificial intelligence strategy in October 2017, and now Dubai has the world’s first artificial intelligence robot police for street patrols. Increase the proportion of robot police to 25% of the total police force by 2030. In addition, Dubai has introduced an “Automated Driving Strategy”, which aims to convert 25% of all transportation to autonomous driving by 2030.
UNESCO’s annual project “Mobile Learning Week” also opened on the 4th. This year’s “Mobile Learning Week” also focuses on artificial intelligence, focusing on the impact of artificial intelligence on sustainable development.
