New Huffington Post Blog: Guru Banavar on AI and Social Responsibility

February 16, 2017

ACM contributes a monthly blog on current issues in technology and society to The Huffington Post. Written by ACM members and guest authors, these blogs offer unique insights by computing professionals to improve the public dialogue around technology news. ACM bloggers also explore the ways in which computing and information technologies impact how we interact with one another and how these forces are reshaping the basic frameworks of society.

In his February 15 post The science of AI and the art of social responsibility, IBM Chief Science Officer for Cognitive Computing Guru Banavar says that it is no longer enough to advance the science of AI and the engineering of AI-based systems. We must now ensure that these technologies are developed, deployed and adopted in responsible, ethical and enduring ways. “In the years ahead, most aspects of work and life as we know it will be influenced by these technologies. And that makes us more than computer scientists. It makes us architects of social change,” he says.
