The new Alphabet Workers Union is making clear that changes must be put in place, both in education and on the job, to allow engineers to start taking responsibility for the social impact of their work.
Even the Oxford English Dictionary contains traces of sexism – it's little wonder that our translation tools do too.
Using a simulation, we found scenarios where AI regulations could be most effective.
In a series of experiments, Australian researchers showed how machines can find vulnerabilities in human decision-making and exploit them to influence our behaviour.
If the historical data used to train an AI system disadvantages certain minority groups, the system can be swayed to follow these patterns in its own decision-making process.
The departure of AI ethics researcher Timnit Gebru from Google highlights attempts to make algorithmic decision-making accountable.
A new report shows Australians on the whole don't know a lot about how AI is used today, have little trust in the technology, and believe it should be carefully regulated.
Leading tech companies are increasingly using AI to influence our behaviour. But how persuasive do we find virtual assistants?
AI-powered tools have proven helpful for some couples trying to separate. But human relationships exist along a complicated spectrum, and even this advanced tech can't grasp it all.
When algorithms make decisions with real-world consequences, they need to be fair.
A machine learning expert predicts a new balance between human and machine intelligence is on the horizon. For that to be good news, researchers need to figure out how to design algorithms that are fair.
Specialist machine learning and narrow AI could help us to start removing the “four Ds” - dirty, dull, difficult, dangerous - from our daily work.
Artificial intelligence is predicted to contribute some US$15.7 trillion to the global economy by 2030. A new report looks at issues specific to New Zealand.
A scene from Ex Machina, where a man becomes close to a robot who displays emotion.
In the future, consciously aware robots could be part of our everyday world, deserving of moral respect and consideration.
