We should be doing more to address AI algorithmic harms

The Oklahoman Guest Columnist - Lisa Palmer, Chief AI Strategist, AI Leaders


When I started my doctorate program, I had no idea where the journey would take me. This article is a perfect example of surprises that I've encountered along the way. I recently had a fabulous instructor, Dr. Christiaan Mitchell, who challenged us to advocate for a legal/regulatory change on a topic of our choice. He didn't want this to simply be an academic exercise, so he required that we write both a short-form and long-form opinion piece and submit them for publication. The research I conducted as background created tangible value for my day job. I also learned about professional advocacy and the media process. What a rich learning experience! As an avid business supporter, I don't love their chosen title for my article. I do, however, fully accept that they know better than I do what will grab their readers' attention!


My point in this piece is that we need a balance between ensuring national security and competitiveness through AI and creating positive outcomes for people. I hope that you'll take a minute to read my thoughts. And as we're gearing up for a new year, I also hope that you'll consider how to engage in your own rich learning experiences. Whatever you choose to learn, I suspect you'll also encounter fun and valuable surprises along the way!
