Artificial Intelligence: New Questions for Legislation and Applied Ethics

ICT and Digital Agenda - Webinars
Date: Thursday, 03 May 2018

Venue: Webinar

This introductory lecture will deal with ethical problems of AI research and AI technology, but will also draw attention to possible cultural consequences and the psychosocial follow-up costs.

Artificial intelligence and ever more complex algorithms influence our life and civilization more than ever, there are many new issues for applied ethics, for example, value alignment, military applications, accelerated societal stratification, or synthetic phenomenology.

Technological progress presents us with historically novel ethical challenges and different stakeholders compete, having different interests and motives. Much of this still sounds like science fiction today - but from a strictly rational, philosophical perspective it is clear that high potential damage levels are to be taken seriously even if their associated probability of occurrence is low.

If time allows, I will also raise the question of whether it might make sense to increasingly implement moral cognition itself in artificial systems. Artificial moral reasoners obviously would not suffer from any cognitive biases, they would maximize the impartiality and rationality of ethical judgments, in complex normative task-domains they would certainly operate with much higher speed than humans, and they could integrate a much larger data-base as empirical premises into their ethical decisions than biological brains ever could.

At what point would we accept the epistemic authority of ethical AI, for example, if “reflexively” applied to the ethics of AI itself?
