HOW QUICKLY THE USE OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
IS CHANGING

Our lead article: Vehicle Location and Tracking Information Available for Nearly Anywhere in the World, Sent August 2nd, 2021, covered the use of Artificial Intelligence to track vehicles nearly anywhere in the world.  The following article shows how quickly current concerns are being raised about that application of technology. We at FFS hope you enjoy reading this update.

Google, Microsoft, and IBM have blocked the development of several AI products and services after internal boards deemed them unethical. With AI an increasingly commonplace component, these tech giants hope to avoid the most harmful potential futures. But critics warn that to leave such important ethical decisions to the goodwill of a handful of companies is far from secure.

AI’s Great Potential 

Investment by companies into artificial intelligence has grown by 530% since 2015 with $68 billion of investment in 2020 alone. Now employed by almost every major company and piece of modern technology, AI has the potential to radically change our society for the better. The Deep Mind Al, for instance, is on track to map the structures of 130 million proteins by year’s end – a task that humans have tried and failed at for fifty years.

AI’s Terrifying Potential 

No disruptive technology comes without drawbacks though. Google, Microsoft, and IBM, which each have their own internal review boards, have rejected or limited AI projects such as credit assessment, voice mimicry, and facial recognition for fears of their misuse. But even as IBM discontinues work on facial recognition, Companies like Clearview Al already provide these services to over 600 law enforcement agencies. This proves that public agencies will have the final say over when and where AI can be “ethically” deployed.

“As an environmental law firm, we use Joe Dickerson to locate prior business owners and do corporate genealogies. He is persistent, that’s the key to a good investigator, and he has a knack for understanding how people move money and do business. That tells him what rocks to look under. Joe is vastly superior to other investigators in two ways: he lets you know what’s going on and he’s honest with you, because he tells you if there’s really anything there worth pursuing. He is unusually thorough and creative finding people. Joe has earned his fee every time.” “If the information is to be found, then I believe that they will find it.

” I was prepared to dismiss a federal case involving millions of dollars against a local individual who claimed to have no substantial assets. After your staff hit the records and delved into the transactions behind the transactions, you discovered the individual to actually be worth a few million dollars. We continued the case to conclusion. We were also very happy with the financial background examinations you conducted of the former directors of two failed national banks. The heart of any civil case is whether there is a pot at the end of the lawsuit. You were our lucky leprechaun in finding such pots.”
