‘…ethics are much more easily manipulated to support a given company or government’s agenda, with limited recourse for anyone who disagrees.’
Alison Berthet, writing in OpenGlobalRights, argues that existing human rights provisions are more robust than ethics and come already backed by extensive bodies of law. She stresses her view is not averse to growing uses of ethical provisions in AI development. Rather, she advocates that standards and remedies already available in human rights law add weight to compatible objectives.
