Abstract

Basque Abstract: Ez dakigu Adimen Artifizialarekiko bapateko miresmena, COVID-19ak sortu duen izuarengatik izan ote den, edo-eta ezjakintasun eta ziurgabetasunak itsutu ote gaituen, disrupzio teknologikoei erantzun azkarra soilik bilatu nahirik. Adimen Artifiziala ez da berria baina agian berria dena zera da: hiritarren bizitzetan eragin zuzena duten zenbait funtzio eta zerbitzuak inoiz baino intentsitate handiagoarekin prozesa ditzakeela. Hala ere, adimen artifiziala eta herringintzaren arteko lotura, (i) oraindik garatu gabe dago edo (okerragoa dena) (ii) gure erabakimen-demokratikoa kontuan izan gabe burutzen ari da. Egoera konplexua izanik, artikulu honek post COVID-19 gizartean jazotzen ari diren eraldaketa teknopolitikoen inguruan Euskal Herriko herringintzarako oinarrizko analisi batekin ekarpen eraikitzailea egitea du xede nagusi. Artikulua, bereziki (euskal) ezker politikoei (abertzale nahiz ez-abertzale) zuzentzen zaie, berandu baino lehen XXI. mendeko herrigintza algoritmiko batetarako landu beharko lituzketen, GALDEra, erronka, eta politikak proposatuz. Artikulua hiru geruzatan amaitzen da: (i) adimen artifizialaren erabilera funtzionalak zerrendatzen dira; (ii) Europako zenbait herrialdeetako sektore publikoan adimen artifiziala aplikatuz garatzen ari diren zenbait proiektu labur azaltzen dira; eta (iii) euskal eragileei zuzendatuko bide-orri estrategiko bat zehazten da.

English Abstract: We may dare to ask about rationale behind the recent devotion caused by Artificial Intelligence (AI). Whether it could be produced by the fear or, by contrast, it stems from the inner ignorance and uncertainty that blind us by attempting to give a quick explanation to a massive technological disruption directly caused by COVID19. AI is not a new phenomenon as such, despite the fact that what it could be new is the way AI is already interfering in citizens’ daily life functions and services shaping them with a deep intensity as a result of the processing capacity of AI. Nonetheless, (i) little is known so far about the relationship between AI and governance, or what is worst, (ii) AI is being deployed without considering democratic accountability and far from our public eye and scrutiny. Acknowledging the complexity of such topic, this article constructively aims to analyse the ongoing technopolitical transformations occurring in the aftermath of the coronavirus crisis for the governance model of the Basque Country. This article is targeted to the political left (either Basque or Spanish nationalist) in pursuit of avoid delaying the work that should be implemented in response to questions, challenges, and policies for XXI. century algorithmic governance. The article concludes through three-intertwined-layer approach: (i) the first approach lists AI functional uses; (ii) the second approach presents brefly several AI projects being currently developed in different European countries; (iii) ultimately, a strategic roadmap lead to stakeholders in the Basque Country is outlined.
