I think it is deeply unhelpful to use the term ethical AI to describe both the question of what we don’t want people to use ML for and mechanical challenges with making ML work as intended. ‘Bad intent’ is not the same problem as ‘not working as intended’ nytimes.com/2019/03/01/bus…
“I don’t like what you want to do with this system” is an entirely different problem to “this system is not doing what we think it’s doing”.
Using ‘ethics’ as the way to describe ‘AI bias’ is often a category error. Bias in the data might apply to human diversity but it might also apply to machine tools, pressure sensors or cellular base station planning.
