Google Forms External Advisory Council to Regulate Use of AI

As the masses are become increasingly alert about cybersecurity, Google have announced plans to deploy an external regulatory board for all Artificial Intelligence enabled projects

Almost all major tech companies have come under severe public scrutiny lately, for various reasons. Unlawful collection of data, immoral monopolization of the market, and many other such reasons have caused problems for even stalwarts of the industry. Owing to that, there has been an increasing effort from these corporates to ensure transparency in their businesses. On March 26, 2019, Google announced their plans to form an external advisory board, which will govern how the tech giant makes use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in their projects.

AI is surely going to play a pivotal role in the times to come, and like any commodity with so much value, it comes with its own advantages, as well as concerns. The world is faced with serious cybersecurity concerns at the moment, as companies across the globe enter into a data race. AI programs, are made in such a manner, that they are able to train themselves, based on input from the user, by using facial recognition and other such softwares. Meaning an AI enabled device, has access to sensitive information, which may be misused by tech companies.

To combat this issue, and possibly ease the nerves among the masses, Google have created this regulatory body, called Advanced Technology External Advisory Council, constituted by eight accomplished individuals with a tremendous academic background, from various disciplines.

“We recognize that responsible development of AI is a broad area with many stakeholders. In addition to consulting with the experts on ATEAC, we’ll continue to exchange ideas and gather feedback from partners and organizations around the world.” Said Kent Walker, Google’s Senior Vice President, Global Affairs, via an official blogpost.
