What happened? A new 'Democratic AI' has been developed that can distribute wealth better than humans. DeepMind, a UK-based AI company, has created an AI that excels in value alignment - a concept that refers to how well the values and goals of an AI system are aligned with what humans actually want. One of the key obstacles to value alignment is that human society is diverse, making it unclear to whose preferences AI should align. The team trained an AI agent for the task of wealth distribution, using real and virtual interactions between people to guide it toward a desirable outcome.
Why is this important for human beings and our society? The DeepMind team-taught an AI system to distribute the money fairly using real and virtual human interactions to help it reach a good and hopefully fairer conclusion.
The so-called "Democratic AI" studied a game known as the public goods game, in which players can invest money into a fund and earn rewards based on their investment level. Traditional redistribution methods were also evaluated, as well as an innovative method created with deep learning using the Human-Centered Redistribution Mechanism (HCRM).
The development of AI has the potential to drastically improve our lives - but only if it is done responsibly. With great power comes great responsibility, and we must make sure that AI is developed in a way that benefits everyone, not just a select few.
"We emphasize that our results do not imply support for a form of 'AI government', whereby autonomous agents make policy decisions without human intervention. We see Democratic AI as a research methodology for designing potentially beneficial mechanisms, not a recipe for deploying AI in the public sphere," the researchers added.
So what do you think? Is this a step in the right direction? Or is it a cause for concern? Let us know in the comments below!

Christian is a futurist and trendwatcher who speaks about the impact of exponential technologies like AI on organizations, people, and talents. Christian tailors his presentations to your audience's specific industries and needs.
Embracing the advancements of technology and AI can enhance our humanity. We can focus on developing our unique talents and skills by automating mundane tasks and freeing up our time. As humans, we can adapt and learn, allowing us to evolve and stay relevant in a rapidly changing world constantly.
Organizations will need to be more fluid, dynamic, and adaptable: the ability to change and adjust in response to new situations and environments. We are on the cusp of a new era of organizations, ones that are more fluid and agile and which behave like swarms we see in nature.
In the future, 3D printing and generative design will allow for products to be designed in a more decentralized manner, and production will take place closer to the customer and fully on-demand. 3D printing technology will also allow for more customization and personalization of products.
The agricultural industry is ripe for disruption. Robotics, AI, and IoT are all technologies that have the potential to radically transform the way we grow food. In combination with vertical farming, these technologies could increase the efficiency and quality of agricultural products.
A human-centered society is one that puts people first and where technology is used to unite and empower people. It is a society that values biological life and dignity above all else. It is a society that recognizes the importance of human relationships and works to strengthen them. In a human-centered society, all members of the community are valued and treated with respect.
The future of healthcare is here. New technologies like AI, IoT, big data, and smart sensors make it possible to become the CEO of your own health. Imagine that your phone can listen to your voice and AI algorithms can detect small nuances in the tone of your voice that indicate specific diseases.
