- Whether it’s driverless cars to personal robots, AI will have to make decisions that could significantly affect our lives.
- One way to instill ethics in AI is to have everyone vote on what robots should do in particular situations. But are values and morals really about what the majority want?
- When we make moral decisions, we each weigh up principles and certain values. It’s unlikely that we can recreate that in AI.
You are responsible for all of the things that you do. The good and the bad lie solely at your door. We are each come swollen with opinions and weighed down by our values. It’s what makes the world such a vibrant and dynamic place. And it’s also why ethics is such a fascinating, conversation-worthy area of study. In any get together, there are as many answers as there are people. In fact, it’s sometimes said if you give two philosophers a problem you get three answers.
