The McKinsey Global Institute projects that artificial intelligence could contribute up to $13 trillion to global GDP by 2030. This technology may soon revolutionize fields such as medicine, education, manufacturing, science, and resource management in ways we can scarcely imagine.

However, AI’s potential to disrupt society is equally profound. Catastrophic scenarios could unfold if AI systems pursue goals incompatible with human values, such as commandeering energy supplies and infrastructure or maximizing resources for their own survival. Some leading computer scientists and AI developers estimate a 10-15% chance that, if left unchecked, ‘Runaway AI’ could pose an existential threat, potentially leading to human extinction within a century.

Kate Crawford, a prominent AI scholar, employs the term ‘register of power’ to describe how AI systems are governed by rules that perpetuate structural biases, favoring existing power hierarchies. This design makes it highly probable that AI systems will exacerbate inequality by amplifying biases and concentrating wealth and influence. While more extreme scenarios are often discussed, these outcomes represent the most likely negative consequences of AI development, reflecting a critical concern in the growing field of AI governance. Similarly probable and pressing issues extend to the domains of art, music, privacy, and intellectual property, where AI’s impact is already being felt.

In response to the significant risks posed by AI, Structural Parity AI offers a unique and groundbreaking governance model. It shifts AI oversight from rules of domination, which limit growth and trust, to rules of shared power, fostering more robust and powerful institutions.

Key attributes of Structural Parity AI include:

  • Closing the Implementation Gap: Structural Parity AI is the only industry-grade model that implements governance and ethical frameworks at the systems level, translating principles into action.
  • Empowering Public Gatekeepers: By incorporating stakeholder decision-making, Structural Parity AI ensures those impacted by AI technologies have a say in their development and deployment, promoting transparency and accountability.
  • Building Authentic Trust: Structural Parity AI helps create institutions that can leverage AI’s benefits while mitigating its risks, resulting in more trusted and capable organizations.

AI’s potential to benefit society is immense, but so are its risks. The existential threats posed by ‘Runaway AI’ and the societal disruptions caused by misaligned objectives and entrenched biases demand an innovative approach to AI governance.

BLS has developed a groundbreaking AI governance algorithm based on Structural Parity, ensuring the authentic implementation of effective ethical AI governance best practices and principles. Unlike leading frameworks that are mainly aspirational, Structural Parity AI offers a practical, actionable path forward.

By adopting Structural Parity AI, we can ensure that the development and deployment of AI technologies align with societal values and priorities, mitigating risks and maximizing benefits. This shift in governance is not just desirable but essential for a future where AI contributes positively to human civilization.
