Artificial intelligence and machine learning pose have several interesting technical challenges. Normally, working in the field I am mostly interested in those. There are also challenges that affect and should be discussed with the broader society. Social challenges are not less interesting than the technical ones.
I thought about them for a long time, indeed, I started thinking about some things when, immediately after my diploma, I worked at Uptime, a firm that archived documents, including few GB of receipts of Migros per week. My latest work didn’t have any real ethical issues, as it uses simulation data about materials, not any kind of personal data. Nonetheless, I stayed interested also in the bigger picture.
I felt that an important part, especially concerning AI discrimination and racism was missing.
I want to thank my brothers Akram and Semir for constructive criticism and proofreading.
