The Conversation: The United Nations needs to start regulating the ‘Wild West’ of artificial intelligence

The Conversation: The United Nations needs to start regulating the ‘Wild West’ of artificial intelligence . “Trust in AI is difficult to obtain, particularly in United Nations work, which is highly political and affects very vulnerable populations. The onus has largely been on data scientists to develop the credibility of their tools. A regulatory framework like the one proposed by the European Commission would take the pressure off data scientists in the humanitarian sector to individually justify their activities. Instead, agencies or research labs who wanted to develop an AI solution would work within a regulated system with built-in accountability. This would produce more effective, safer and more just applications and uses of AI technology.”
