Some answers varied depending on political party, race and gender.

When asked what regulation of AI might look like, an average of 61% of Republicans were concerned the government would "go too far," while an average of 64% of Democrats thought the government would "not go far enough.

There were also reservations about how inclusive AI is

Approximately 51% of participants said they thought the experiences of men were well considered in the development of AI, compared to 36% feeling the same about women's experiences

Another 48% of participants said they felt the experiences and viewpoints of white adults were thought of. The percentage of respondents who said the experiences of Asian adults, Black adults and Hispanic adults were taken into account were 33%, 24% and 23%, respectively.


We are making the Machine in our image.
If we are scared of it, what does that say about what we think about ourselves?

Of course people are scared of AI. They lack the I.

The A is where I kick myself for not becoming a plastic surgeon. Plenty of A out there nowadays.

It's pretty well documented that people in general are terrible at risk assessment.

Human nature to fear the unknown

That we live in a society that is still to this day racist, sexist, homophobic, and transphobic to name a few and that we're likely to bake that into our AI programs?

Most feared: driverless cars.

On second thought, maybe we need to open the "freedom convoy" to all Americans.  One trip around 495 (DC Beltway) will cure anyone of thinking humans should exclusively be piloting multi-ton vehicles >60MPH.

I was initially disappointed in the response rates, but the wording in questions being asked are are misleading or asinine.

"Facial Recognition [...] to look for people who have committed crimes"

Well no shiat people responded favorably to that. Try something like "Facial Recognition to perform constant surveillance of innocent people and frequently mis-identify innocent people with extra high error rates for non-whites" and see what people respond

Facial Recognition in humans depends on who you run into and what you are doing at the time and whether your wife would be interested.
