The Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff predicted that artificial intelligence could very likely become a human right in the upcoming future. In different cultures, societies, and countries human rights have a different definition of human rights. The United Nations once decreed internet access to be a basic right and while the premise was non-binding the UN still thinks deliberate disruption of the internet as a violation against human rights.
In the same way, it is predicted that not providing access for Artificial Intelligence would also be condemned in the future. Salil Shetty made a comment saying, “This is the future where the enormous power and potential of AI is harnessed for the good of humanity, promoting equality, freedom and justice. It’s a future where open source AI allows innovators across the world to harness the power of technology., where explainable AI is developed and used, allowing for AI decisions to be interrogated and challenged, and with clear legal accountability systems to ensure that the rights and responsibilities of users and developers are clear.”
He strongly believes that enshrining AI ethics in human rights is the best way to make AI a positive force in the collective future. This is not the first time a public figure has asked a question of artificial intelligence regarding future societies and ethics.
