A conversation about why outsourcing the moral responsibilities of AI is not an option. Miguel Luengo, AI expert, entrepreneur and chief scientist at UN Global Pulse, speaks with Konstanze Frischen, Ashoka’s global leader on Tech & Humanity.

"I argue that we need to move to a humanity centric AI. If AI is a real game changer, we must take into considerations the implications of AI for humanity as a whole - at present, and in the future. I call that solidarity. We need to a) share the prosperity and burden of AI, which implies the re-distribution of productivity gains, and collaboration to solve global problems caused by AI; and b) we must assess the implications that AI has on humanity long-term before developing or deploying AI systems. In other words, solidarity lives in the present and also is strategic long term thinking for the future."
