Along with the increasingly massive use of technology, the Ministry of Communication and Informatics (Kominfo) plans to prepare guidelines artificial intelligence ethics or artificial intelligence (A.I).
The development trend of big data results in the utilization of unstructured data (unstructured data) for the significant development of AI technology. This condition makes the use of AI closely related to the issue of protecting personal data.
Departing from this issue, Kominfo is currently preparing guidelines ethical use of AI in Indonesia.
Deputy Minister of Communication and Information (Deputy Minister of Communication and Information) Nezar Patria said, as one of the most hotly discussed issues in recent times, AI’s ability to form data patterns supported by the availability of data that can be accessed by the public via the internet system needs to meet applicable regulations.
