EPFL professor Anthony Davison and co-authors provide a mathematical basis for concerns about ethical implications of AI.
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 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.
For example, lay people think that the sickest patients and those on waiting lists should be treated first, while ethicists - and to some degree medical professionals - tend to have a different set of priorities. This is the conclusion of a study by ETH researchers investigating the principles that apply to the fair allocation of scarce medical resources.
