I interviewed nine of the most brilliant minds in the AI space. Each of them possesses a unique perspective, vastly different paths to the world of AI, and one-of-a-kind approaches and principles on how AI can be used ethically to bring about positive change.

What if we were able to take beliefs, values, best processes, and experiences from each of them to create one singular AI mind? Would that mind create a roadmap leading us to the light we all seek?


The Necessary Parts

I would start with Yevgeniya-Jane-Pinelis, at the Office of Chief, Digital and AI Officer. From here, we begin to build our ultimate AI mind with her experiences in the adoption of rigorous AI testing protocols and AI ethical principles in the Department of Defense. Her tireless advocacy of credible and objective Test and Evaluation and implementation of Responsible AI will ensure we do not abuse the power of AI. Her ideals of building “a virtuous cycle where we have some initial successes really implementing responsible AI technology which will in turn then lead to wider trust and adoption that then gives us even more opportunities to learn and improve our responsible AI infrastructure” gives us the perfect base to begin our build.

Next, from Atti Riazi, CIO of the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, we could use her practical, no-nonsense view of AI. She told me that “ the application of technology often entails unintended consequences. We cannot simply incorporate technology without working to understand its long-term impacts. And because these can involve significant social issues, the tech sector needs to partner with governments, NGOs, and civil society for these impacts to be addressed responsibly…I’m a big believer in the power of technology, while I’m pessimistic about some of the consequences that are coming in, I do think that partnership is really critical.”

Now that we have added in the optimism on the tech rooted in common sense how-to, we need experience from a different world. For that, we turn to Linda Leopold and Sol Rashidi. Linda Leopold is the Head of Responsible AI & Data at H&M Group. Her department does everything based on these two goals. To use AI to do good to reach their sustainability goals and work with AI carefully, ensuring they don’t cause unintentional harm. Her dedication in the private sector, traditionally driven by revenue alone, to sustainability and responsible use of AI brings much-needed perspective, skill set, and roadmap to universal AI for Good.[…]
