Microsoft researcher addresses concerns about artificial intelligence

Two top leaders in the artificial intelligence field, Microsoft researcher Eric Horvitz and Thomas Dietterich of Oregon State University, recently wrote a Viewpoint column urging researchers to focus even more intensely on near-term artificial intelligence challenges while also thinking about and addressing concerns voiced about future, dystopian potential consequences. In the column, they also discuss beneficial contributions on the horizon, including artificial intelligence technologies that could save many thousands of lives lost to accidents on our roadways and errors made in hospitals. They also note that artificial intelligence will lead to substantial advances in education, transportation and commerce. Read the column in the Communications of the Association for Computing Machinery, a leading journal serving computing professionals in academia and industry.
