Artificial intelligence

One of the key issues for Sports Wizard® is the ways in which we will deal with developments in artificial intelligence in the context of human intelligence and intelligence augmentation (link).

We are mindful that the appearance of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ Global Initiative on Ethics of Autonomous and Intelligence Systems (2019), Ethically Aligned Design, First Edition (link) is an important contribution to this conversation and that we need to contemplate autonomous and intelligent systems and their organisational impact. We note too that in May 2019, the OECD Principles on Artificial Intelligence defined an Artificial Intelligence system as “a machine-based system that can, for a given set of human-defined objectives, make predictions, recommendations, or decisions influencing real or virtual environments. AI systems are designed to operate with varying levels of autonomy”.

The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) (2020) (link) has published a consultation paper on the OPC’s Proposals for ensuring appropriate regulation of artificial intelligence. The paper has an extensive bibliography on artificial intelligence. The Office notes that artificial intelligence presents “fundamental challenges to all foundational privacy principles”. This is the focus of Sports Wizard®’s efforts to argue for the place of human intelligence and augmentation in discussions about machine learning and artificial intelligence.

We note that Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers uses autonomous and intelligent systems to overcome the vagueness they perceive artificial intelligence to have as a term. The Institute uses this terminology is throughout their Ethically Aligned Design, First Edition paper to ensure “the broadest possible application of ethical considerations in the design of the addressed technologies and systems”.
