A new frontier for humanity
Great initiative, and a great sequel to the keynote you gave in Brussels at the IAPP's DPC2022 last month.
As someone working in policy and compliance, I'll be watching this space very closely. I'm afraid the next frontier of digital regulation is not at all where our policy makers think it is: clearly engines like DALL.E can at the click of a button conjure up out of thin air all the paper mountains that our legislators believe will make for accountable and trustworthy use of AI, and we can easily end up with perfect synthetic evidence of all-round compliance without a single word of it having anything to do with reality. How about disposable instant deepfake distributed ledgers to make anything look authentic now, and disappear a minute later?
So in truth I'm a lot more concerned with things like: What, if anything, should and could be done to preserve human dignity, social cohesion, or legitimate authority in the face of maliciously used generative AI? So much to rethink, so much change to effectuate! I don't know if I'm feeling thrilled or terrified.
In any case, I'll be looking forward to reading this substack, hearing more of your talks, and, who knows, maybe to engaging in person as well someday.
Nina, thank you for your work to help with step one: understand. I look forward to reading and hearing from you. Since Christmas is coming up, allow me to add a couple of topics I would love to hear your thoughts about (and am happy to actively discuss them with you):
1. Considering the digital society, who will profit from generative AI and how, who won‘t? What’s needed to shape this transition for the best?
2. How will public service make use of generative AI and what are prior requirements?
3. Questions about ethics and copyrights
Thank you, Lena
This is going to be epic! So excited to follow your exploration of this space, Nina.
Super excited for this - thank you, Nina!!
Hi Nina, Looking forward to reading about your perspectives on the Generative AI world!
how should we contact you
Great presentation today at IAPP. Great work. Keep moving this forward.
