Apple joins research group for ethical AI with fellow tech giants – The Verge

As artificial intelligence becomes an increasingly powerful force, some of the world’s biggest companies are worrying about how the technology will be used ethically, and how the public will perceive its spread. To combat these problems, five tech companies — Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Facebook, and IBM — set up a research group called the Partnership on AI. Today, Apple has joined their ranks along with six new trustees from corporate and nonprofits, cementing the Partnership’s position as the foremost industry AI research group.
