Can Artificial Intelligence be Moral?
CAN Artificial Intelligence be moral? In my opinion, no. Should this prevent us from establishing how to morally use AI? Absolutely not. In fact, the absence of AI moral capability should drive our need for explicit and clear frameworks for the moral use of AI outputs. I use the term “moral”, somewhat sensationally, to emphasise the use of AI as a tool of judgement (decision making or decision support) where outcomes need to adhere to principles of “right” and “wrong”. However, in reality, such polarity is not always practicable and the terms “ethical” and “fair” are more familiar and more commonly used.
