My favorite part of Nixonland so far has been learning about the takeover of Willard Straight Hall at Cornell in '69 because it really puts into stark relief that the 60s were waaaaay way wilder than anything people freaked out about in the 2010s.

Imagine you go out for a meal. The menu is presented to you, but it is just a series of lists - ingredients, cooking techniques, kitchen equipment. You have no idea what the actual dishes being served are, or in what order. This is your average ‘privacy policy’

Lol ht PS as a small child in the USA midwest, my mother herded pheasants with her parents during the Great Depression, is that interesting? Apparently they were stupid (the pheasants).

It's good to see these stories move away from AI and get into the real issue: how algorithms, math, and biased assumptions control society and maintain power structures - this has been going on since the creation of actuarial tables in the mid-19th century

I do really read these for e.g. local coffee shops, more because I don't like to lie to friends (by clicking that I've read them when I haven't) than because of professional interest.

My argument is that documenting is a means of demonstrating due process, so we just need regulators to realise that a) failure to produce such documents is a failure of demonstrating due process and/or b) that there IS a process to writing software. But ask

If anyone really wanted you to read the Terms & Conditions they would put the most recent update time & day next to the link so you knew if you needed to click it.

Relevant cites: besides Lacuna , my forthcoming intro for the OUP Handbook of AI ethics discusses at more length with citations. More engineeringy is & my chapter on human-centric

By that definition, using with respect to AI is an abrogation of responsibility, because as our Lacuna paper shows, we cannot allow tech itself to defect since we cannot reliably dissuade tech, only persuade each other to program it reliably. 2/2

I'm not advocating avoiding the word . I'm advocating one of the leading sociological & philosophical theories, that it is best viewed as a relationship between peers that allows them to defect when necessary rather than be micromanaged. 1/2

Yes me too, and a sensible ontology of trust vs transparency & reliance really helps with that in my (extensive) experience of public & policy speaking.

I don’t think it’s dangerous for machines to trust people, I think it’s an incoherent category error of a phrase. Suggesting machines should OR shouldn’t trust anything at all is just confusion & anthropomorphic projection — it’s overidentification.
