Safety and Ethics

The superhuman potential of AI is immensely powerful, but only if used in a safe and responsible way. It’s critical to ensure AI is reliable and behaves in a desired way. There are numerous examples of when AI has reinforced unfair biases. AI safety teams keep themselves accountable by applying a set of best practices. This allows them to control systems in operation to ensure an AI system aligns with the operator’s true intentions. Additionally, in order to understand how technological advancements will impact society, research teams collaborate with ethicists, policy researchers and the general public in an attempt to create socially beneficial technology.
