Today, for Wire Worry Week: cyber safety. Ben Reid is the executive director of New Zealand’s Artificial Intelligence forum. The rise of AI means our world will be increasingly based in technology, and there need to be people ensuring our security is safeguarded as this technology develops. The forum released a report last week: ‘Shaping a Future New Zealand’. They found that developments in AI are not going to lead to mass unemployment, contrary to common fear. Mary-Margaret Slack asked where that worry comes from.
