Humane AI is a project or an endeavour shaping the whole AI research of the future. We want Human-Centered AI, what does this mean? It means that when we develop this technology, an over reaching technology and very important for our future, we should really keep human in the centre which means this technology is there to serve humans, to benefit humanity, individuals and society. It’s not there to be developed by itself. It’s there to increase our wellbeing and our understanding of what intelligence is. It’s really there to help us to grasp better our future. It’s a formidable tool that should be developed correctly to help us increase our benefits.
Every researcher in AI wants to understand what is intelligence. We have different approaches to that. I think to understand intelligence, we need to understand how intelligence interacts with the real world, because the real world puts limits and challenges. The world is changing its complex and very difficult to understand, and this is what intelligence is about, making sense about the real world. It’s not working in an abstract and simulated world. It really has to address both the real time constraints and the evolving complexity of the world. My take on what would be a real blue sky project in AI is to make it interact with the really world and understand how it can do that efficiently.
