How to build trust in the age of AI

Imagine cruising down the highway in your Tesla (Model 3), sold by the dreams of the autopilot feature. Suddenly a disaster strikes as the car's AI fails to distinguish a semi-truck ahead, resulting in a fatal accident. This scenario that occurred in Florida on March 2019 highlights the potential dangers of reliance on AI in autonomous vehicles. Yet, in October 2023, researchers from the University Medical Center Utrecht, developed a deep learning algorithm; a form of AI, to identify brain tumours, speeding up diagnosis which now goes on potentially save millions of lives.

What are the rules for the ethical use of AI?

A few months ago, intellectual property officials in South Africa became the first in the world to award a patent that names an artificial intelligence (AI) as the inventor of the product.
