There are many efforts underway to teach machines how to be ethical so they can assist with—and perhaps even improve—human decision-making. The Inamori International Center for Ethics and Excellence will host a panel discussion titled “Are We Ready for Artificial Ethics? AI and the Future of Ethical Decision-Making” today (March 6) from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in Tinkham Veale University Center, Ballroom A, to discuss the topic.
About the lecture
What are the likely effects of living in an increasingly machine-assisted world? The panelists will consider whether artificial intelligence designed by people must be doomed to repeat—and even amplify—human flaws, or if it can be designed to serve as a healthy check and balance against the more pernicious aspects of human nature. The panel will consider such questions as: Should AI make life-or-death decisions? What is the future of artificial ethics?
