Oxford University releases "Artificial Intelligence: Americ

Introduction: Recently, the Artificial Intelligence Management Center of the Institute of Human Futures at the University of Oxford published a report entitled "Artificial Intelligence: Attitudes and Trends of Americans", detailing the US's exploration of the development trend of artificial intelligence and artificial intelligence. It is regarded as an important material for studying the impact of artificial intelligence on the public.

Treat artificial intelligence, What kind of attitude is needed? Faced with the rapid iteration of artificial intelligence, what perspective should you look at?

Recently, the Artificial Intelligence Management Center of the Institute of Human Futures at the University of Oxford published a report entitled "Artificial Intelligence: Attitudes and Trends of Americans", detailing the development of artificial intelligence and artificial intelligence in the United States. It is regarded as an important material for studying the impact of artificial intelligence on the public.

1. About the full picture and concept of the report

The advancement of artificial intelligence can affect the labor market, transportation, health care, education and national security. However, the impact of artificial intelligence can be very positive, but the risks and barriers that are brought about are worthy of attention.

In the United States, public sentiment will develop debates on many policies, including immigration, free trade, international conflicts, and climate change mitigation debates. This understanding is for managers to make informed policies and identify opportunities for the public. Promoting the characteristics of artificial intelligence, benefits and risks are crucial.

In this report, the results of an extensive survey of the attitudes of the American public towards artificial intelligence and artificial intelligence governance are presented.  Based on a nationally representative survey conducted from June 6 to 14, 2018, a total of 2,000 American adults completed the survey.

2. Discussion on the main points of the report

Americans expressed different support for the development of artificial intelligence. 41% support or strongly support the development of AI to a certain extent, while 22% of the groups are somewhat or strongly opposed to the development of artificial intelligence.

Artificial intelligence to complete some comprehensive work, which may involve collaboration between multiple devices or multiple systems. For example, for smart homes, people have long imagined that they can use an artificial intelligence system as a central control center to connect all external information and manage all the appliances in the home. But so far, such a home systemStill at a very early stage. A versatile system means that you can handle multiple goals and have a certain ability in every aspect. The current artificial intelligence is often in a special breakthrough stage.

Demographic characteristics vary widely in supporting the development of artificial intelligence. 57% of university graduates expressed more support for the development of artificial intelligence than those with high school or low education; people who reported more household income, such as those who earn more than $100,000 a year, have lower than the income $30,000 is more support; people with computer science or programming experience are more supportive than those without 31% of the experience; 47% of men support women.

82% of Americans believe that robots or artificial intelligence should be managed with care. This figure is comparable to the survey results of EU respondents. Robotization is the most important step in artificial intelligence. Artificial intelligence can be like a brain, but if it has a limb, it will be more effective. The current robot functions are relatively simple, although some very complicated actions have been completed, such as bipedal walking, such as judging user emotions through the user's facial expressions, etc., but the goal of helping people to complete their daily work is far away.

Americans believe that government and technology companies need to be carefully managed in the 13 artificial intelligence governance challenges raised in the survey. Governance challenges that are considered to be the most likely to affect people around the world and rank highest in the importance of issues in the next 10 years include: preventing AI-assisted surveillance from invading privacy and civil liberties; preventing artificial intelligence from being used to spread false and harmful content online; Prevent artificial intelligence attacks against government, companies, organizations and individuals and protect data privacy.

Americans have a distinct degree of trust in the various organizations that develop and manage artificial intelligence for the best interests of the public. Broadly speaking, the public has the most trust in university researchers; followed by scientific organizations, artificial intelligence partnerships, technology companies and intelligence organizations; followed by the US federal or state governments and the United Nations; and finally Facebook.
