Global Attitudes Towards AI, #MachineLearning & Automated #DecisionMaking

In a new study by researchers at the Oxford Internet Institute, ‘Global Attitudes towards Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Automated Decision Making, analysis shows that public perceptions on the use of AI in public life is divided, with populations in the West, generally more worried about AI than those in the East.
The study, co-authored by doctoral researcher Lisa-Maria NeudertDr Aleksi Knuutila, and Professor Philip N. Howard, is based on analysis of survey data from the 2019 World Risk Poll, published by the Lloyds Register Foundation powered by Gallup, which examines peoples’ perceptions of global risks across 142 countries.  It is the second in a series of reports from the Oxford Commission on AI and Good Governance (OxCAIGG), which seeks to advise world leaders on effective ways to use AI and machine learning in public administration and governance.
The Oxford researchers examined the 2019 World Risk Poll data in relation to public attitudes towards the development of AI in the future, in particular, whether people think AI would help or mostly harm people in next twenty years.
The findings show significant regional differences, with North Americans and Latin Americans most skeptical about the benefits of AI, with at least 40% of their populations believing AI will be harmful, whilst only 25% of those living in South East Asia and just 11% of those living in East Asia expressed similar concerns.
