Reader: The 10 commandments of AI

Given that artificial intelligence has been raised almost to the status of a religion, it’s hardly surprising that a new 10 commandments on AI and ethical computing have been carved out, writes Chris Middleton writes in Internet of Business.

The Rt Rev the Lord Bishop of Oxford, a Member of the House of Lords Select Committee on Artificial Intelligence, proposed a 10-point plan to ensure technology is applied ethically and for social good at the Westminster eForum Keynote Seminar.

The 10-point plan includes the commandments that “AI should be designed for all, and benefit humanity,” and “Governments should ensure that the best research and application of AI is directed towards the most urgent problems facing humanity.” And given recent concerns about the potential for AI’s use in the development of autonomous weapons, perhaps Dr Croft’s list ought to be taken seriously.
