The best way to ensure the fairness of scoring systems is through routine auditing by an expert agency. Much like the . does with taxes, the Federal Trade Commission could randomly select private scoring systems for review on an annual basis. technologists could run expected and unexpected hypothetical scenarios to assess whether algorithmic predictions are statistical proxies for race, gender, religion and disability – thereby cutting down the possibility that the algorithms infringe on civil rights. The ever-present threat of an audit would encourage the adoption of precautions and, perhaps, encourage entities that are building scoring systems to be more mindful of concerns about discrimination and inaccurate predictions based on polluted data.
DuPont is also very grateful for the support that thousands of science teachers have given The DuPont Challenge over the years. In fact, the success of The DuPont Challenge has been due in large part to the commitment of the entire science education community. We give special thanks to our partners at the National Science Teachers Association, Encyclopedia Britannica, , and A+ Media. The prizes and awards for the 2015-2016 awards will be fulfilled and our winning teachers will be recognized at the 2017 NSTA conference in Los Angeles.
The term "technological singularity" reflects the idea that such change may happen suddenly, and that it is difficult to predict how the resulting new world would operate.   It is unclear whether an intelligence explosion of this kind would be beneficial or harmful, or even an existential threat ,   as the issue has not been dealt with by most artificial general intelligence researchers, although the topic of friendly artificial intelligence is investigated by the Future of Humanity Institute and the Machine Intelligence Research Institute .
