The responsible and ethical use of AI is close to our hearts at greenhouse intelligence. Andrew Burgess, greenhouse’s CEO, has been writing and speaking on the important aspect of the democratisation of AI. As well as his speech at the All Party Parliamentary Group on AI last year, he was also asked to write an article for Medium on the subject, which has now published. (Although it is behind their paywall, non-subscribers can read up to three articles a month free). To give you a feel for the piece, this is the most highlighted section so far: “This shift toward ‘democratic A.I.’ has three main principles: that all society will be impacted by A.I. and therefore its creators have a responsibility to build open, fair, and explainable A.I. services; that A.I. should be used for social benefit and not just for private profit; and that because A.I. learns from vast quantities of data, the citizens who create that data — about their shopping habits, health records, or transport needs — have a right to say and understand how it is used.” To read the full article (which takes just 5 minutes) you can click here.
