Artificial Intelligence (AI) is emerging rapidly across the Asia-Pacific, with major implications for labor, human rights, privacy, media, and democracy. Our AI project explores these issues from a public interest perspective.
In the last of our video blog series on artificial intelligence (AI) and Southeast Asia, EngageMedia interviews 5G researcher Melinda Martinus on how the different 5G providers in the region – whether from China or outside Asia – can influence the AI technologies that will be powered by it.
Independent researcher Jun-E Tan shares her realisations while researching the opportunities and challenges that artificial intelligence has and continues to bring to Southeast Asia. Her video blog is the second in a series, and part of EngageMedia’s research on AI and its implications in the region.
In a video blog for EngageMedia’s research on artificial intelligence (AI) in Southeast Asia, IT for Change Deputy Director Nandini Chami answers two pressing questions on AI governance: What is the problem with AI governance today? And, how should developing countries address this issue when evolving AI strategies and roadmaps?
Going beyond traditional Western frameworks of artificial intelligence (AI), this article shares other lenses from various cultural landscapes from which to view AI ethics.
In Part 2 of our series exploring existing artificial intelligence ethics and their shortfalls, we find that ethical principles and guidelines currently in use have limited substance in their content and also a high possibility of being used mainly as window dressing while diverting us away from more structural solutions such as legal regulations.
In the digital era, AI ethics are not enough to stop tech companies from generating huge amounts of profits amidst negative impacts on the environment and society. In this blog post, we have discussed the substance of ethical guidelines that have mushroomed in the recent years and found that the contents of these guidelines are mostly focused on narrow fixes and carry with them problematic blindspots which do not help with systemic solutions.
