7. Responsibility

Publisher: University of Montreal, Forum on the Socially Responsible Development of AI

[QUESTIONS] Who is responsible for the consequences of the development of AI? How should we define progressive or conservative development of AI? How should we react when faced with AI’s predictable consequences on the labour market? Is it acceptable to entrust a vulnerable person to the care of AI (for example, a "robot nanny”)? Can an artificial agent, such as Tay, Microsoft’s “racist” chatbot, be morally culpable and responsible? [PRINCIPLES] ​The various players in the development of AI should assume their responsibility by working against the risks arising from their technological innovations.
