Ask the average American about Artificial Intelligence (AI), and you’re likely to hear stories and theories about a coming robotic revolt.

In a recent post on IDG Connect (registration required), Stanford University Professor Christopher Manning, director of the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, discussed the implications of AI creation. In his commentary, Professor Manning lists the parties responsible for safeguarding AI projects.

"One of the leading ideas is that a lot of these questions about ethics and bias need a broader expertise," he writes. "It's not just about computer scientists dictating the direction and what is and isn't ethical. Humanists and social scientists have experience and expertise in these areas, so we need a broad range of people engaged in the conversation."
