With technology seeming to become more advanced with each day that passes, understanding the role of ethics is of extreme importance, which is exactly what Zeynep Tufekci's talk on artificial intelligence elaborates on.
A former computer programmer, Zeynep Tufekci speaks to the advancements technology has made in just a short time, with an example being the ability of artificial intelligence to process human faces and the vast range of information computers can extract from this. With advertisers and government agencies playing close attention to this evolution, technology is being increasingly utilized in ethically questionable ways.
Keeping this in mind, Zeynep Tufekci considers the importance of remaining subjective in her talk on artificial intelligence. Due to the fact that software is becoming less transparent and more complicated, computers can fail in ways people might not necessarily expect. This is what makes human values and ethics more important than ever, says Zeynep Tufekci, as the boundaries regarding them are constantly being pushed and adapted.
