The MIT Intelligence Quest

As digital transformation revolves around data, managing - making sense of - that data is increasingly the realm of Artificial Intelligence. AI is what Google uses to determine what ads to show you, it's what Amazon uses to get you to buy new things, and it's what Facebook uses to make sure you keep clicking. All of these things increase the revenue of these companies but perhaps at great cost to democracy as they segment society. The big question is: how can we harness the increasingly pervasive reach of AI to make a better world?
I'm excited about the new MIT Intelligence Quest project. Though they only barely mention the philanthropic side, it gives me hope that an institution that is capable of creating beneficial AI standards -- the Three Laws of Robotics if you will -- is beginning to take aim in that direction.
