The Four Horsemen of AI

I came across a tweet by Dan McQuillan today with a good concept, usable for arguing for SSNA (@nadia: “a human-powered alternative to AI”).

The four horsemen of AI:

  • Fairness
  • Transparency
  • Accountability
  • Interpretability

It is not perfect, because the Horsemen are supposed to be negative forces. I guess McQuillan means that these are negative forces for AI itself, but the rhetoric would be more powerful if it were reversed: unfairness, opacity, etc. I will leave this to @hugi and Nadia. :slight_smile:


I could fill in on my old ideas of human-directed AI. Aimed at the same issues.

@asimong sure, go right ahead!

Curious to have this subject more developped, as I’m passionated about AI

Sorry the thread slipped between my fingers :slight_smile:

I’d like to say something much shorter and more helpful, but here is my PhD which ended up being all about this…

Simon Grant's thesis index page

Please, please, feel free to dip the smallest toe in and then ask me to expand on anything of interest.
I guess, start at the last chapter.
