Should Artificial Intelligence Be Regulated?

Leading AI researchers and engineers believe that those who favor regulation of AI negate the benefits it has been giving to society. Furthermore, they argue that the future of this technology be celebrated and eagerly anticipated rather than feared. John Giannandrea, the senior vice president of engineering at Google, reinstates this by describing any hysteria towards AI is “unwarranted and borderline irresponsible.”(Source #1) He uses the term “irresponsible” for the people who perpetuate this worry while holding large influence amongst the public. He goes on to say that “the people who don’t understand the technology get very concerned rather than focusing on the benefits of AI.” (Source #1) Giannadrea suggests that the atmosphere…show more content…
Human-in-the-loop (HIN) and human-on-the-loop (HON), specifically are already in implantation. For example, a type of HIN in use today is Israel’s Iron Dome system, which allow humans to control the robot’s target and amount of force; and an example for HON is South Korea’s guard robot placed on its border with North Korea, which would allow a human to override any actions deemed misplace of the robot. (Source K) Regulation to AI would possibly hinder convenient technologies already ingrained in today’s modern warfare. However when concerning human-out-of-the-loop weapons, requiring no input or intervention from humans, both sides of the argument meet, sharing the opinion that regulation of sorts is necessary. The fear expressed by those in favor of regulation is accepted by the opposition side of this debate. Thus, those who contest the regulation of AI believe that fully autonomous weapons, is the only branch, or offspring, of AI that should be regulated and even banned from use in society. Even so, despite the commonality between them, those who object regulation as a whole digress when it comes to voicing ‘premature’ outcries that causes disrupt in the general public. Perhaps
