It is important that new technologies are accessible to all and used for the good.
Google leader Sundar Pichai in a recent interview with the Financial Times said that artificial intelligence systems already need new regulatory rules.
He noted that this technology is already beneficial. However, in order for people to continue to receive from the technology only positive, artificial intelligence “must develop responsibly.”
Sundar Pichai said that new regulatory rules are necessary in view of the potential threats that the same face recognition technology may pose. However, the question is how to properly regulate artificial intelligence, because it can and will be used in various fields.
Google’s chief believes that somewhere more tight control is needed, and somewhere more freedom can be given. He noted that for unmanned vehicles it is already necessary to come up with new rules, and for medicine it is quite possible to leave the existing ones.
He added that companies like Google cannot just create new technologies on their own to decide how they will be used. It is important that new technologies are accessible to all and used for good. This requires cooperation between countries and common standards around the world.
