Machine Intelligence: Impact on Human Society

David Moschella from Leading Edge Forum participates in Risk Roundup with Jayshree Pandya to discuss “Machine Intelligence: Impact on Human Society”.

 

Overview

When nations: its government, industries, organizations, academia and individuals (NGIOA-I) are presented with a new innovation, new technology or new way of doing things, a number of factors influence their decision-making process. For e.g. whether the technology or process will be used, how it will be used and when– are just some of the factors that would come in play when making a decision about any new way of doing things. In addition, whether using a particular technology or process would enhance the job performance, whether it would decrease costs, increase profits also gets factored into decision-making process.

Now when we evaluate “Artificial Intelligence” from the perspective of whether this extraordinary innovation will be accepted by nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA), it brings forth very complex challenges and independent and interdependent security risks that will likely be very difficult to manage for any nation: its government, industries, organizations, academia and individuals.

It is certain that the potential of AI realized will likely depend on how it is understood and received by NGIOA-I, its social and political impact, understanding of the benefits and risks and willingness on part of NGIOA-I to accept the fundamental changes brought on by the AI.  In short, the potential of AI will be heavily influenced by individual human choice and opinion.

Generally, an “individual”, a “human being”, a “common man” across nations is largely taken for granted when it comes to technology trend or acceptance. However, when it comes to AI, nations should not make any mistake of taking the “common man”, an “individual” component of a nation for granted.

While some studies are under way to understand the effects of artificial intelligence on society, including efforts to understand its effects on the economy, war, crime, jobs and so on, we, the humans still have to understand how will we reshape human roles, responsibilities, purpose and plan.

About the Host of Risk Roundup
Jayshree Pandya (née Bhatt) is a visionary leader, who is working passionately with imagination, insight and boldness to achieve “Global Peace through Risk Management”. It is her strong belief that collaboration between and across nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA) will be mutually beneficial to all—for not only in the identification and understanding of critical risks facing one nation, but also for managing the interconnected and interdependent risks facing all nations. She calls on nations to build a shared sense of identity and purpose, for how the NGIOA framework is structured will determine the survival and success of nations in the digital global age. She sees the big picture, thinks strategically and works with the power of intentionality and alignment for a higher purpose—for her eyes are not just on the near at hand but on the future of humanity!
At Risk Group, Jayshree is defining the language of risks and currently developing thought leadership, researching needed practices, tools, framework and systems to manage the “strategic and shared risks” facing nations in a “Global Age”. She believes that cyberspace cannot be secured if NGIOA works in silo within and across its geographical boundaries. As cyber-security requires an integrated NGIOA approach with a common language, she has recently launched “cyber-security risk research center” that will merge the boundaries of “geo-security, cyber-security and space-security”.
Previously, she launched and managed “Risk Management Matters”, an online risk journal and one of the first risk publications, publishing “Industry Risk Reports of Biotechnology, Energy, Healthcare, Nanotechnology, and Natural Disasters” over the course of five years. Jayshree’s inaugural book, “The Global Age: NGIOA @ Risk”, was published by Springer in 2012.

About Risk Roundup

“Risk Roundup” is an “integrated strategic security risk dialogue” for nations: its government,  industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA) in cyberspace, geospace and space (CGS).Risk Roundup is released in both audio and video format and is available for subscription at (Risk Group WebsiteiTunesGoogle PlayStitcher RadioAndroid, and Risk Group Professional Social Media).

About Risk Group
Risk Group believes that risk management, security and peace walk together hand in hand. Though security is related to management of threats and peace to the management of conflict, risk management is related to management of security vulnerabilities as well as management of conflict, and it is not possible to conceive any one of the three without the existence of the other two. All three concepts feed into each other. Risk Group believes that the security we build for ourselves is precarious and uncertain until it is secured for everyone across nations. Tradition becomes our security-so if we build a culture of managing risks effectively it will lead us to security and security will lead us to peace!
