The Guardian view on the ethics of AI: it’s about Dr Frankenstein, not his monster | Editorial 12 Jun 1:10pm The Guardian view on the ethics of AI: it’s about Dr Frankenstein, not his monster | Editorial
Google’s ethical principles for the use of artificial intelligence are little more than a smokescreen, but they show that many engineers are rightly worried by the possible uses of the technology they’re developingFrankenstein’s monster haunts discussions of the ethics of artificial intelligence: the fear is that scientists will create something that has purposes and even desires of its own and which will carry them out at the expense of human beings. This is a misleading picture because it suggests that there will be a moment at which the monster comes alive: the switch is thrown, the program run, and after that its human creators can do nothing more. They are left with guilt, perhaps, but no direct responsibility for what it goes on to do. In real life there will be no such singularity. Construction of AI and its deployment will be continuous processes, with humans involved and to some extent responsible at every step. This is what makes

Why South Koreans are worried about the Trump-Kim ‘deal’ | Hans Schattle 12 Jun 12:48pm Why South Koreans are worried about the Trump-Kim ‘deal’ | Hans Schattle
Critics fear Kim Jong-un has ambitions to reunify the peninsula – and that, given the latest concessions, Trump may back himThe Singapore summit made history in symbolism, but can this new dialogue end North Korea’s 70 years of isolation from the outside world and transform relations on the Korean peninsula? Many details must be clarified before we know if the summit will make history in substance – and if the divided Korean peninsula is to move beyond the uneasy peace of the past 65 years.

I’m standing up to the far right in Lewisham – because Labour isn’t | Mandu Reid 12 Jun 9:30am I’m standing up to the far right in Lewisham – because Labour isn’t | Mandu Reid
It is painful for me to share a stage with an ex-Ukip candidate. But, unlike the two main parties, I won’t dodge my dutyRunning for parliament is a steep learning curve, full of challenges, and this week brought the most personal one yet: whether to attend a hustings where far-right characters who have brought their vile agenda to my south London constituency would be on the same platform.

Straight eye for the queer guy – Owen Jones gets a (much-needed) makeover 12 Jun 1:00am Straight eye for the queer guy – Owen Jones gets a (much-needed) makeover
Declared the ninth-worst-dressed man in the UK, Owen Jones has not found being gay equals having good fashion sense. Can the Guardian’s style squad change things? The first time I went on the BBC’s Question Time, in February 2012, I wanted to make a decent impression. The fact that I looked like Macaulay Culkin in Home Alone wouldn’t play in my favour – on my Twitter feed, people regularly queried whether I was taking time off from my paper round when I appeared on TV. But my then flatmate Liam took pity, and promised to leave out a special, smart-looking shirt.
