Mozilla has announced a partnership with Element AI in a bid to advocate for the use of ethical artificial intelligence (AI).
On Monday, the tech giant said the strategic partnership between Mozilla and Element AI is focused on addressing “how new AI technologies and tools present challenges and opportunities for today’s digital frontiers.”
In particular, the ethical case for AI and its applications is of concern. AI, despite its infancy, has already proven itself in use cases that benefit humanity such as its use in neuroscience to assist paralyzed patients to communicate, the diagnosis of medical conditions and for tracking in academic research projects.
However, for every worthwhile, ethical purpose, AI can also be used for applications that some may deem unethical, including the development of unmanned weapons and military vehicles, as well as for mass surveillance.
The importance of ethical AI technology in the society is also initiated and mentioned in AI Ethics Report from AI World Society (AIWS) to promote ethical standards and frameworks for constructive use of AI in the society with the collaborations of different organizations and entities.
