Dec 21, 2 PM in ICT-638 "Legal accountability in AI-based robot-agents’ user interfaces"
At Software Science Departmental seminar on Friday, Dec 21, 2018 at 02:00 PM Roland Pihlakas (Simplify (Macrotec LLC)) will talk about "Legal accountability in AI-based robot-agents’ user interfaces".
The seminar will take place in ICT-638.
Determining why exactly a particular decision was made by a robot-agent is often difficult. But the whitelisting-based accountability algorithm can greatly help by easily providing an answer to the question who enabled making a particular decision in the first place. Whitelisting enables the accountability and humanly manageable safety features of robot-agents with learning capability.
The central subject of this project is legal accountability in artificial intelligence. We are going to show who can justifiably and fairly be made responsible for the actions of artificial agents, and how can whitelisting help both artificial intelligence developers and legislators in making sure that we will have as few surprises as possible. In other words, the project will research the possible ways to control and limit the agents’ actions and learning from a legal point of view, by utilising specialised, humanly comprehensible user interfaces, resulting in clearer distinctions of accountability between the manufacturers, owners, and operators.
