News - 30 April 2018 - Webredactie

Europe’s secret weapon in the race against the U.S. and China on artificial intelligence is … ethics. The EU Commission wants to spell out how to preserve fundamental rights along with the rise of AI. One of the central goals in the EU strategy is to provide customers with insight into the systems. Virginia Dignum, an AI researcher at the Delft University of Technology, said “transparency of AI is more than just making the algorithm transparent,” adding that companies should also have to disclose details such as which data was used to train their algorithms, which data are used to make decisions, how this data was collected, or at which point in the process humans were involved in the decision-making process.
