Building responsibility into the future of AI  

2023 is shaping up to be an inflection point for AI. Five years ago, we mentioned that barely a week goes by without a mention of AI in the news. Today, stories of how organizations are finding new ways to use AI to optimize operations, improve health outcomes or advance sustainability goals are more frequent than ever.

And not just companies. Increasingly, AI will seep into people’s daily lives, with tools like OpenAI’s ChatGPT and the new AI-powered Bing and Edge, currently in preview, helping to facilitate routines tasks – from drafting emails to planning trips – and give people the space to pursue more. creative work and innovative thinking.

The potential for AI to help humans solve all kinds of complex challenges is clear. However, like other technologies, AI systems need to be developed responsibly, ensuring that they work as intended and are used in ways that earn trust.

In our latest #TechTalk, Microsoft’s Chief Responsible AI Officer, Natasha Crampton, joins us for a conversation on the responsible development and use of AI.

In the episode, Natasha explains how Microsoft’s approach to AI is guided by a set of six responsible principles of AI: fairness; reliability and safety; privacy and security; companionship; clear; liability. Given AI’s transformative potential, he emphasizes the clear need for proper guardrails that help secure the technology’s beneficial uses while guarding against its misuse and potential harm.

According to Natasha, “AI systems are built by humans, and humans use them. One area that is very important for us is human interaction with AI. How can we ensure we get the best out of people and machines working together? That’s Microsoft’s vision for how we embrace AI. It’s all about how we can maximize human potential. We need to figure out the best way to bring together the best people and the best machines.”

With the EU’s AI Act just around the corner, Natasha also addresses the regulatory role to advance AI and ensure AI is developed and deployed responsibly. He suggests actionable steps to limit high-risk use cases, while continuing to enable innovations that will keep Europe competitive globally.
