EPFL professor Anthony Davison and co-authors provide a mathematical basis for concerns about ethical implications of AI. Artificial intelligence (AI) is increasingly deployed around us and may have large potential benefits.
Anna Jobin has investigated which ethics guidelines for artificial intelligence already exist, and finds that ethical AI is by no means merely a technical matter. The second thing to surprise, or rather disillusion me: sustainability is mentioned in only one sixth of all guidelines and recommendations; human dignity and solidarity occur even less often.
The Neue Zürcher Zeitung recently published a paper on the ethical challenges of digitisation written by Peter Seele, economist, philosopher and professor of business ethics at USI Faculty of Communication, Culture and Society and Dirk Helbing, professor of Computational Social Science at ETH Zurich.
