Responsibility and Autonomy in Artificial Intelligence
A two-day conference on philosophical issues about autonomy and responsibility in the area of AI technologies.
New technologies, especially those based on artificial intelligence (AI), develop at rapid speed. In fact, AI increasingly executes tasks that previously only humans could do, such as communicating freely with others (e.g. Alexa), driving cars, performing complicated medical tasks, firing guns as part of autonomous weapon system, or even selecting job applicants. What is more, AI increasingly outperforms humans: on average, AI is the better driver and in some domains of medical diagnosis, drug development, and the execution of treatment and surgery, AI already is, or soon promises to be, better than trained medical professionals. However, despite great promise, there are also risks and costs associated with these new technologies, leading to intricate ethical, social, and political questions. This conference will feature some of these questions, with a particular focus on questions related to autonomy and responsibility.
