Artificial intelligence in its current state is unfair, easily susceptible to attacks and notoriously difficult to control. Often, AI systems and predictions amplify existing systematic biases even when the data is balanced. Nevertheless, more and more concerning the uses of AI technology are appearing in the wild. This list aims to track all of them. We hope that Awful AI can be a platform to spur discussion for the development of possible preventive technology (to fight back!).
We need socially aware, empathetic, well-rounded people from all kinds of backgrounds to get more involved in AI because the projects on this list are showing us that the current path we’re heading down is completely unacceptable.
