A Study on the Ethical Problems of Artificial Intelligence


This is because only humans have morality, autonomy and free will, and therefore only humans can be held accountable for their actions. However, the emergence of artificial intelligence (robots), a new entity that knows how to think and act autonomously through self-learning, continues to ask the following questions.

The Ethics of Artificial Intelligence was published in which nine researchers newly identified the ethics of coexistence with artificial intelligence from a post-human point of view.


Traditionally, ethics has been human ethics, strictly speaking, human ethics, the only subject of moral thinking and actions. Others other than humans were considered only moral objects, not as moral subjects.


This is because only humans have morality, autonomy, and free will, and therefore only humans can be held accountable for their actions. However, the emergence of artificial intelligence (robots), a new entity that knows how to think and act autonomously through self-learning, continues to ask the following questions.


Can artificial intelligence (robots) have the status of ethical actors that traditionally belonged only to humans? The traditional requirements for becoming an actor are the reason, consciousness, orientation, free will, etc. Does artificial intelligence meet these requirements of actors in the traditional sense? Or is there a need for a new concept of actors that can now encompass new technological entities such as artificial intelligence? If we imagine a world coexisting with artificial intelligence, wouldn't it be necessary to discuss a new moral entity that goes beyond the traditional meaning of the actor/passive distinction? etc. These issues are very important topics in the ethics of artificial intelligence.


Recognition of various ethical issues that can arise when artificial intelligence lives with us can sufficiently contribute to preemptively devise countermeasures at the institutional level.


In addition, research and development of moral artificial intelligence whose judgments and actions are controlled by ethical value norms from the beginning, rather than simply research and development of smart artificial intelligence that does well on its own, minimize social-ethical problems caused by artificial intelligence. It can be a good alternative.


Ultimately, if ethics based on the close relationship between humans and artificial intelligence from a relational point of view emerges, rather than staying on the human entity-centered ethics, this is the ethics of coexistence and will have the significance of the future as the ethics of the future required in the age of artificial intelligence. . However, this book is not yet complete enough to be called ethics of artificial intelligence.


Strictly speaking, it can be said that it corresponds to the basics of ethics. Discussions on the moral status or nature of actors (whether human or artificial intelligence) essential to construct ethics and the existing ethical theories that can support them have been discussed to some extent, but a new ethical theory has been developed from a relational point of view. This is because it was not organized systematically.


As the title suggests, this book specifically talks about the ethics of artificial intelligence. The topics that are very important to the ethics of artificial intelligence are divided into three parts. In Part 1, the ethical issues of artificial intelligence, we identify and answer the ethical challenges posed by artificial intelligence through several important examples of everyday life.


In Part 2, Making Ethical Artificial Intelligence Robots, we explore ways to create ethical artificial intelligence robots that think and act ethically in order to cope with the ethical issues raised in the first part. Part 3 examines the moral status of artificial intelligence and the possibility of new ethics for imagining coexistence with artificial intelligence on the subject of the ethics of coexistence with artificial intelligence. It is hoped that through consideration of artificial intelligence and existing ethical theories, affluent discussions about the ethical problems of artificial intelligence that have persisted in the past and present will continue to take place.
