Why we launched DeepMind Ethics & Society”

DeepMind has announced that they are launching a new research unit called DeepMind Ethics & Society, aimed at helping the company explore the impacts of artificial intelligence in the real world. The UK-based company, which Google bought in 2014, today announced the formation of a new research group dedicated to the thorniest issues in artificial intelligence.

At present, the unit comprises around eight DeepMind employees and six unpaid fellows from outside the company.

Google's AI subsidiary DeepMind is getting serious about ethics.

These networks can be trained to recognize patterns in information - including speech, text data, or visual images - and are the basis for a large number of the developments in AI over recent years.

According to DeepMind, AI applications must remain under human control - a thought that is shared by many. The Partnership on AI, a task-force of industry titans Google, Facebook, Apple, Amazon, IBM, and Microsoft that promised proactive work and industry standards on artificial intelligence implementation, has done little besides retweet its board members since May 2017.

DeepMind, acquired by Google in 2014, gained notoriety for becoming the first machine to beat a grandmaster in the Asian board game Go previous year.

DeepMind has assembled a team of fellows for the project. The group also intends to follow five core principles: That AI should have social benefit, that its research should be rigorous and evidence-based, the group should be transparent, its work should be interdisciplinary and include diverse viewpoints and it should be collaborative and inclusive.

The system uses an internal "imagination encoder" that helps the AI decide what are and what aren't useful predictions about its environment.
