While there is a lot of discussion across a number of vectors, to discuss all, or even most of them would be interminably lengthy and many of the same issues stratify across all the sectors. So as an example, let us take the particular issues of ethics and security.
The following is a rather interesting position that bring this close to home. It was penned by Guido Noto La Diega, a Northumbria University School of Law, faculty member. It is titled “The European strategy on robotics and artificial intelligence: too much ethics, too little security.” It looks at the increasing interest in the ethical design of intelligent robots, which integrate AI, ML and MI, including some recent reports and the European Parliament’s resolution on civil law rules on robotics.
Diega discussed a report on the ethical aspects of cyber-physical systems, published by the European Parliament’s Science and Technology Options Assessment Panel in 2016.
“The main concerns expressed in the report regarded unemployment, excessive delegation of tasks, safety, responsibility, liability, privacy, and “social relations.” The last issue gives rise to a fundamental question whether robots should “acquire some form of moral sense,” Diega wrote.
The EU Parliament is the first legal institution in the world to have initiated work of a law on robots and artificial intelligence. The report revolves around the question of ethics in the AI realm, and what the options are for setting boundaries for AI.
