Artificial Intelligence is a very social matter

Defensa, Hacienda y Salud encabezan el gasto en Inteligencia Artificial de la mayoría de los gobiernos. IA+Igual sugiere probar el gran potencial de la IA en Asuntos Sociales.

Madrid, November 16. This week, Marisa Cruzado Collado, Maite Sáenz, and Félix Villar, members of the Advisory Council of AI+Equal, presented the approach of this initiative to 35 professionals from the Ministry of Family, Youth, and Social Affairs of the Community of Madrid. They all had something in common: the first ones, putting the Person at the Center of the Algorithm; the community professionals, Focusing on the Person.

Los promotores del Proyecto IA+Igual propusieron la tecnología para optimizar recursos y alcanzar más objetivos. Marisa Cruzado, coordinadora del Consejo Asesor, destacó la «"importance of Social Affairs claiming investment in R&D&I so that the budget is allocated to positive uses of AI, such as avoiding biases in the labor market." She illustrated this with an example: "Recently, I was talking about job creation on a radio talk show. After the program, I received a job offer on my phone." Lo ilustraba con un ejemplo: “recientemente, hablaba sobre creación de empleo en una tertulia de la radio. A la salida del programa, recibí una oferta de trabajo a través del móvil”. Why not try initiatives like this?

Imagine that, through an algorithm, we can program compliance with LISMI, the integration of other vulnerable groups to whom laws grant the right to work regardless of their gender, race, age - contemplated, on the other hand, in the Constitution. Is it or is it not a matter worth working on with Artificial Intelligence?

"Sometimes we go crazy thinking about what will happen with AI. It's already here: if I configure my musical tastes on Spotify, I'm telling it a lot about who I am. We have to be responsible when providing our data," explained Félix Villar.

As on other occasions, Félix used the analogy of AI as a baby, but with a different example: «si educo la IA en una familia disfuncional, el resultado puede ser el de Matrix -no diferencia lo que es real y lo que no lo es-. Pero si la educo en una familia con valores y en un contexto adecuado, el resultado es parecido a Star Treck: los robots crean riqueza y las personas se dedican a cuidar a la familia y explorar el espacio».

Regulation - irregular?

In a few weeks, the regulation of the use of Artificial Intelligence has become almost a state matter. China was ahead in terms of "regulation" of Artificial Intelligence: thousands of cameras flood the streets, and there is no qualm about biometric use to control citizens. In the European Union, the prohibition of real-time biometric control was clear until a few hours ago when several countries broke the deck.

Initially triggered by the war between Israel and Gaza, U.S. President Joe Biden took a step forward for Defense reasons, but his decree bears a suspicious resemblance to China's in terms of controlling freedom of expression under the guise of preventing fakenews. -como ya sucedió con COVID-19 o las elecciones de 2020-.

Regarding regulation, Maite Sáenz emphasized that Spain has the strictest data protection law but lacks the capacity to address the scope of AI. «La IA no es neutra y es necesaria una #regulación con criterios éticos, pero nuestro país no está haciendo nada durante la presidencia de la Unión Europea”.

Otro punto de disputa para los europarlamentarios son los llamados modelos fundacionales que están detrás de herramientas generativas como Bard, de Google, o Chat GPT y de Microsoft. Hace unas semanas parecía haber consenso sobre la necesidad de fijar normas más estrictas para los sistemas más potentes, un enfoque basado en el potencial riesgo que perjudicaba especialmente a esos gigantes empresariales estadounidenses… Francia, Alemania e Italia se oponen a cualquier regulación de los modelos funcionales.
