3:20 am
a professor of computational linguistics at university of washington. she joined us via zina from seattle. thanks for being with us here. now, we will deal with the ethics of this in a moment, but i must ask you 1st, how credible is the idea that a i can be sent in, in any sense? so what people are calling a i now, which is string manipulation systems are in no sense, and yet it is not credible in the least. okay. well, in that case, i mean, what, in your opinion, on the most ethical pressing issues when it comes to i think there's huge issues around transparency because we're creating systems that can produce coherent, same in text. and as we see, can i fool people into thinking that they are sent and that they have consciousness, or that they're even intelligent. and therein lies many, many problems. so what we need is the produces of these systems to create them with transparencies that it is clear to the users what their actual capabilities are. well, that's interesting. so is there enough scrutiny then?
3:21 am
do you think with what's going on with a i research and, and what does that matter? i think there's not enough scrutiny. i'm like that because a lot of this research is happening behind closed doors. i'm in large companies that are sitting on very large amounts of data that they've collected, that are not available to the public, to explore or to outside auditors to explore and with amounts of computing resources that others don't have access to as well. in terms of who gets to use ai and for what purpose? how concerning could that be? do you think? i think we have to be very clear, but what we mean by the term, a i right now that we have pattern recognition systems that companies and governments will use taking large collections of data, finding patterns in them and, and making decisions for actual people that impact their lives based on that data, and that's a big problem. we need to know what those data sets are, what the patterns are, and we have recourse if we don't like the decisions being made. but it's not
3:22 am
actually intelligence and a i is a misnomer for all of us. so what should this technology be used for that in a positive sense? in your opinion? i think there are some very nice use cases, things like automatic transcription, things like machine translation. so long as they're being used in ways people know that it's a machine that can make mistakes and to not take everything. it says as the actual truth of what is transcribing or translating ok will leave the emily bender at university wash. and thanks for your insights today hearing ok, thank you. the un, human rights council has assessed that israel has no intention of ending its occupation. palestine and territory also says that discrimination against palestinians is a root cause of tension and instability. israel has dismissed the report as biased, but of smith reports not from occupied east jerusalem demolitions of palestinian homes, force displacement settlement construction,
