It’s capable of tracking down scammers and defrauders, testing traditional models and verifying your identity, but can it decide about your loan? Mariusz Cholewa, PhD, the President of the Polish Credit Bureau (BIK), on artificial intelligence in the financial sector, in conversation with Tomasz Jurczak
We want to draw attention to how inhumane the world of algorithms is, to talk about malpractices of digital corporations and to expose the truth about the technology everybody admires, says Wiesław Bartkowski, head of Creative Coding at SWPS University of Social Sciences and Humanities, in conversation with Monika Redzisz.
If an algorithm has been used to make a decision that concerns us, we have the right to know about it. We can’t simply give up and say: “This is artificial intelligence and only artificial intelligence knows what to do”, says Agata Foryciarz, an IT specialist from Stanford University, in conversation with Monika Redzisz.
In a world of superhumans with computer implants and all knowledge at their fingertips, what it means to be human will change. The nature of human rights will have to evolve too – claims Roch Głowacki, a lawyer who advises on AI and new technologies, in an interview with Anna Zagórna.
The algorithm itself is neither ethical, nor unethical. It is the human who created it, who made more or less ethical decisions. So he’s the one responsible. Maciej Cho-jnowski talks with Przemysław Biecek, professor in Human-Centered Artificial Intel-ligence at Warsaw University of Technology.
THE END OF PRIVACY!? A VOTE FOR “NO.” I do not believe in catastrophic theories that assert we will have to become dependent on technology and we will not be able to control it – says Mirosław Sopek from the MakoLab company.
If the models of artificial intelligence aren’t explainable, then specialists (e.g. in medicine) must fully trust the technology, even though their signature is below the diagnosis. We are working on a system in our Laboratory which will be able to answer what forms the basis of its predictions. Monika Redzisz talks to Piotr Sobecki, the manager and the team leader of the Applied Artificial Intelligence Laboratory
