In June, public opinion and data company YouGov surveyed 2,000 Americans to gauge their feelings about artificial intelligence (AI).
According to the newly released results of that survey, just 41 percent of Americans “somewhat support” or “strongly support” the advancement of AI. And experts fear that lack of consensus — combined with a lack of faith in AI developers — could prevent the tech from reaching its potential.
YouGov conducted the survey on AI development on behalf of the University of Oxford’s , a research institute focused on guiding AI development in a way that maximizes the benefits for humanity while minimizing the risks.
