Description

The spark of artificial intelligence is often attributed to Alan Turing, who was one of the first people to explore this, then foreign, concept of AI. However, his studies were restricted by the unavailability of higher powered computing technology. With the continuous development of powerful technology in recent years, significant advancements have been made in the field of artificial intelligence. These advancements have reached the point where people’s lives are put at the hands of AI in certain situations. This brings in many complications regarding the morality of artificial intelligence technology. One route that scientists are taking involves using a database of humans’ ethical decisions to provide a foundation for AI decision making. My objective is to increase the depth of this database by traveling up the coast of California and collecting data on different people’s responses to various ethical dilemmas. This interview process will occur between the dates of May 15, 2019 and June 3, 2019. After I gather this information, I plan to look for trends in responses. I will use these trends to write an article about common perspectives in ethics and how they can be applied to artificial intelligence in society.
