Artificial intelligence makes harsher judgments than humans on whether rules have been broken, a new study claims. And scientists fear it might lead it to overstep the mark on punishments depending on what information it's been given.

When it is programmed based on the rules alone, with no human nuance, it is much harsher than when it's based on our responses.

The study by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) looked at how AI would judge perceived breaches of a code.

They found the best data to program AI with is normative - where humans have stated whether or not a post breaks a certain rule. However, many models are erroneously based on descriptive data where people label the factual features of a post and AI applies the code and decides whether there’s a breach.

For the study, dog images that could violate an apartment’s rule against aggressive breeds were collected and groups were asked to give normative and descriptive responses. The descriptive team was not told about the overarching dog policy and was asked to indicate whether three factual features were presented in the image or text, such as whether the dog appears aggressive.

Their responses were used to craft judgments - if a user said the photo showed an aggressive dog, the policy was violated.  ... '
