Making the right decisions about how to develop and use AI for good is very difficult. Some groups might benefit a lot from AI, and others might be harmed a lot. It is hard to predict how AI will be used in the future, especially if it becomes extremely capable (e.g., as good or better than a human at most tasks). That means the decisions that individuals, organisations, and policy actors make are very important, and figuring out the ‘right’ decisions and getting these groups to make those decisions will be hard.
Behaviour science can help to identify, understand and influence impactful decisions about how to develop and use AI (“AI governance”). In this talk I will describe how to practically apply behaviour science to this area.
