The University of Guelph announced it will launch the Centre for Advancing Responsible and Ethical Artificial Intelligence, The Canadian Press reports. The center seeks to address various issues related to artificial intelligence, such as the protection of individuals’ privacy rights, the elimination of algorithmic biases, and the creation of regulations and public policy related to AI ethics. "There has to be, with any AI, essentially a tradeoff between what you can do with the technology and how much you're willing to violate people's privacy in order to achieve those technological objectives," Academic Director Graham Taylor said. "We're still fully in control of these systems, so it's the right time to drive toward human values ... potentially before it's too late, because there are things that could go wrong."
