Human error far more dangerous than Artificial Intelligence

4 February 2019

As a UN report reveals a “quantum leap” in the number of AI patents being filed around the world, it isn’t the tech that we should be worried about, but the way that we choose to use it.

That’s the view of Kriti Sharma, one of the UN’s Young Leaders For Sustainable Development Goals, who set up the AI For Good organization in the UK, which aims to ensure that AI helps to create a better, fairer world.

In an interview with Conor Lennon from UN News, she points out that AI tools are only as good as the people who create them and warns of the dangers of assuming that they are free from bias or prejudice.
