Observatorio IA - riesgos

Que los humanos introducimos nuestros sesgos en los algoritmos no es ninguna novedad y es una de las principales fuentes de preocupación sobre estas tecnologías. Lo que no sabíamos hasta ahora es que el proceso puede suceder a la inversa: la máquina también puede contagiarnos a nosotros sus errores sistemáticos y estos se pueden perpetuar. Es lo que concluyen las investigadoras españolas Lucía Vicente y Helena Matute después de realizar una serie de experimentos cuyos resultados publican este martes en la revista Scientific Reports. 
There’s been a lot of discussion in recent months about the risks associated with the rise of generative AI for higher education. Much of the conversation has centred around the threat that tools like ChatGPT - which can generate essays and other text-based assessments in seconds - pose to academic integrity. More recently, others have started to explore more subtle risks of AI in the classroom, including issues and equity and the impact on the teacher-student relationship. Much less work has been done on exploring the negative consequences that might result from not embracing AI in education.

Will truth and reason survive the evolution of artificial intelligence? AI researcher Gary Marcus says no, not if untrustworthy technology continues to be integrated into our lives at such dangerously high speeds. He advocates for an urgent reevaluation of whether we're building reliable systems (or misinformation machines), explores the failures of today's AI and calls for a global, nonprofit organization to regulate the tech for the sake of democracy and our collective future.
