AI: Accountable Intelligence vs. Artificial Intelligence


On May 13,2023, The Wall Street Journal published several articles citing 27 different words beginning with the letter “A” that are connected to Generative AI.

  • Accuracy
  • Appropriateness
  • Analyses
  • Accessibility
  • Availability
  • Assessment
  • Alternatives
  • Aids
  • Addons
  • Answers
  • and the most important “A” word … Accountability

The bottom line: Power augmented intelligence needs to be fully accountable intelligence.
