Steps towards a Fairer AI

The AI revolution is largely based on an enormous knowledge theft, which will possibly be a never-ending source of revenues for companies. In fact, skilled and unskilled workers do their own everyday jobs and leave important traces. These traces are the training examples that machines can use to learn. Hence, AI is stealing these workers’ knowledge by learning from their interactions. The stolen knowledge is going to produce neverending revenues for companies for years. This is a major problem since only a very small fraction of the population owning shares of these companies can benefit from this never-ending revenue source and the real owners of the knowledge are not participating to this redistribution of wealth

#HitAI seeks to

give back part of the revenues to the real owners - the knowledge producers.

Any profit-making interaction a machine does has to constantly repay whoever has produced the original knowledge used to do that interaction.
