What Self-Driving Cars Tell Us About AI Risks

Since 2016, automotive AI in the United States has been linked to at least 25 confirmed deaths and to hundreds of injuries and instances of property damage. An expert gives a ringside view of how real-world applications of transportation AI are or are not working.

Trustworthy Evidence For Trustworthy Technology

This new publication from the IEEE Global Initiative’s Law Committee and the IEEE-USA AI Policy Committee discusses three components of trustworthiness, with a particular focus on evidence required for establishing the trustworthiness of a system. Also included is information on the IEEE resources (e.g. IEEE standards) available for addressing these three tiers.

Guidelines for Ethically-Aligned Businesses

Ethically-aligned businesses prioritize people and the planet as the metrics for responsible AI. A report from IEEE Standards provides direction for business leaders to utilize these metrics while also informing policy makers of the issues these metrics will create for citizens as well as buyers.

AI Everywhere, All at Once

It’s been a frenetic six months since OpenAI introduced its large language model ChatGPT to the world at the end of last year. The sentiment that we’re moving too fast for our own good is reflected in an open letter calling for a pause in AI research, which was posted by the Future of Life Institute and signed by many AI luminaries, including some prominent IEEE members.

Surface Signatures of Ocean Subduction for Targeted Sampling

Vertical velocities in the ocean are generally several orders of magnitude smaller than horizontal ones. However, the vertical exchange of water masses is a critical component of the climate system; it also plays a large role in the redistribution of nutrients and pollutants, thereby impacting ecosystems.

Design and Deployment of Marine Robotics for Environmental Exploration and Monitoring

The ocean plays a critical role in shaping the future of the planet under climate change, acting as the primary store of heat and carbon on Earth. In order to better understand the effects of this interaction between the climate and ocean into the future, exploration and monitoring of marine environments is critical.
