Maximizing the extraordinary potential of artificial intelligence Dr. Joanna Bryson
The AXA Research Fund is supporting 5 research projects on artificial intelligence, such as that of Dr. Joanna Bryson from the University of Bath, UK, on the appearance of robots.
The American researcher Joanna Bryson explores the ethical issues of AI through experiments on how people behave and interact with robots. Since 2016, the researcher has also been a consultant to the OECD, an international organization whose mission is to promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world. "People tend to both be afraid of these technologies and to expect too much of them. They have in mind what movies show, but that's science fiction. In reality, AI is very different – it’s a tool, it’s a way of programming". Her project aims to provide solutions that make the robot’s machine nature explicit, without compromising potential therapeutic uses.
