Are the Machines Taking Over? The Ethics of Artificial Intelligence - Walter Sinnott-Armstrong/Duke (Live)

Walter Sinnott-Armstrong – Duke University

What Are The Ethical Dilemmas Associated With AI?

Computers answer my questions and give me directions as I drive. They decide who gets organs for transplantation and bail in criminal courts. They serve as companions for elderly and disabled, and they guide autonomous cars and weapons of war. Is it dangerous or immoral to leave all of these decisions to machines? Will computers make morally better decisions than humans do? Can artificial intelligence improve on human moral judgments? Will artificial intelligence systems or robots act in destructive ways?

We need to face all of these questions in the near future. The solution is to build morality into computers, but how can we do that? We will see.
