The identity of the people on Google’s artificial intelligence ethics board is still a mystery


From Business Insider:

DeepMind cofounder Mustafa Suleyman once again refused to say who sits on Google’s mysterious AI ethics board on Monday despite having previously said he wants to disclose it to the public.

The board was quietly created in 2014 when Google acquired the London artificial intelligence lab. It was established in a bid to ensure that the self-thinking software DeepMind and Google is developing remains safe and of benefit to humanity.

Speaking at the TechCrunch Disrupt conference, Suleyman said: “So look, I’ve said many times, we want to be as innovative and progressive and open with our governance as we are with our technology.

“It’s no good for us to just be technologists in a vacuum independently of the social and political consequences, build technologies that we think may or may not be useful, while we throw them over the wall.”
