There’s a big problem with AI: even its creators can’t explain how it works

There’s a big problem with AI: even its creators can’t explain how it works | GLOBAL TECHNOLOGY XYZ | Scoop.it
The car didn’t follow a single instruction provided by an engineer or programmer. Instead, it relied entirely on an algorithm that had taught itself to drive by watching a human do it.

Getting a car to drive this way was an impressive feat. But it’s also a bit unsettling, since it isn’t completely clear how the car makes its decisions. Information from the vehicle’s sensors goes straight into a huge network of artificial neurons that process the data and then deliver the commands required to operate the steering wheel, the brakes, and other systems. The result seems to match the responses you’d expect from a human driver. But what if one day it did something unexpected—crashed into a tree, or sat at a green light? As things stand now, it might be difficult to find out why. The system is so complicated that even the engineers who designed it may struggle to isolate the reason for any single action. And you can’t ask it: there is no obvious way to design such a system so that it could always explain why it did what it did.

The Dark Secret at the Heart of AI

If this does not scare you - it should...

a system that makes decisions - and nobody knows how?

maybe someone should be listening to Stephen Hawking - now!
