Why ethical A.I. is nonsense

Robo Saint and Devil

It is a well-known fact that systems built with A.I. technology are often showing unethical behavior. They can be racist, sexist, or otherwise biased. The problem are not the algorithms. They are just applied mathematics and therefore quite incorruptible. But the models built with these algorithms are trained using data created by humans. And this is where the bias comes from. Humans behave often unethical and is is therefore not surprising for A.I. to show corresponding behavior.

Knowing John McCarthy: The Father of Artificial Intelligence

Human and robot touch fingers

After playing a significant role in defining the area devoted to the creation of intelligent machines, John McCarthy, an American computer scientist pioneer and inventor, was called the “Father of Artificial Intelligence.” In his 1955 proposal for the 1956 Dartmouth Conference, the first artificial intelligence conference, the cognitive scientist coined the term. “Every aspect of learning or any other feature of intelligence can, in principle, be described so precisely that a machine can be made to simulate it,” he claimed.
