Ethical AI uses artificial intelligence to enhance the human condition by performing tasks that are menial or impractically slow to accomplish manually. Key factors in maintaining ethical AI include:
- Explainability – the algorithms used can be understood by humans, with calculations that can be explained in plain language. This is essential to verifying that AI is serving its intended purpose.
- Boundedness – Ethical AI is set to operate within pre-determined boundaries, and does not have the ability to create its own pathways to exploring or learning unintended information.
- Purpose – Ethical AI is modeled to produce only specific answers to well-defined problems.
