A new poll finds that worries about the harmful effects of AI are outpacing concerns about the positive effects of helpful AI.The results come at a time when a growing number of people are paying attention to news about AI in their daily lives.
That fits with how US activists, policy experts, and researchers who want to protect civil rights and hold businesses and governments using AI accountable often call for comprehensive data privacy protections.
One impact of AI on daily life the survey didn’t ask about is the technology’s potential to help or hurt discrimination.
And even people active in the fight against AI that enables human rights abuses can feel helpless or lose hope.
AI has been seen as a solution to some problems but not as a means of solving others.
