Transparency by Deliberation
Optimization
Calls for greater transparency in the workings of artificial intelligence models have become more strident in recent years. Transparency mitigates issues of fairness, discrimination, and trust, and allows humans to see whether models have been thoroughly tested and make sense, and understand why particular decisions are made. Ivana Bartoletti defines the concept of transparency, those involved in AI development, and those impacted by the system.

AI May One Day Usurp Human Decision-Making in War
New Era
Tesla Chief Executive Elon Musk warned in a 2019 interview that the very nature of the Artificial Intelligence they are building, is one that crushes humans in all games, and asked how long it will be before humans being supported by AI becomes AI supported by humans, and whether the world is getting closer to AI-driven conflicts. Information Technology engineer Pawel Piotr Maksymiak imagines army HQ staff with increased visibility of the battlefield, and increased speed of decision-making approved by default by operational executives and examines NORAD and NORTHCOM AI-systems and notes that AI algorithms after a while become proverbial ‘black boxes,’ with data being processed and analyzed by AI/machine learning algorithms that get ever harder to follow, and he muses on how to ultimately understand how decisions are really being made, and the potentially dire consequences of non-comprehension.
