As businesses increasingly utilize artificial intelligence (AI) to make important decisions for humans, there is growing concern about the compatibility of AI and human values. Researchers today are examining how to make AI learn ethical principles in addition to calculative and strategic intelligence. We’ll explore:
- Conversational AI agents’ behavior and ethical values
- Conditions under which it is unethical and conditions under which it is not unethical for AI to lie to human users
- How the ethical status of conversational AI in part depends upon cultural norms
- Implications for AI companies’ ethical duties on how to program AI
This guest lecture is sponsored by the Center for the Study of Ethics in the Professions and the Coleman Foundation.
