Title:Meaningful Human Control in Hybrid Intelligence

Abstract: Hybrid Intelligence is the intelligence emerging from a true collaboration between human and artificial intelligence. The future of humankind is determined more and more by the results of a co-evolution process of humans and their technology. Artificial intelligence is a force to be reckoned with as the autonomous intelligence it creates is still developed mostly from a business perspective to supplant people, thus reducing costs and increasing efficiency of current workprocesses. In this talk I present the different view of hybrid intelligence in which humans and artificial intelligence work together to achieve dreams that so far are beyond human capcatity and in which the co-evolution of human and artificial intelligence will foster and advance human intelligence as well as artificial intelligence. When talking about artificial intelligence with a high dose of autonomy and working alongside humans, the issue of Meaningful Human Control is vital for our immediate and long-term safety. After explaining the notion of Meaningful Human Control I sketch the prinicples of co-active design and design for values that we need to achieve Meaningful Human Control in Hybrid Intelligence.Technology for Hybrid intelligence itself can play a major role in the necessary co-deliberation and co-creation process of the co-active design of Hybrid Intelligence.
