The development of Artificial Intelligence raises many ethical questions regarding the proper use and the potential future of robot technology. At the moment, most of these questions seem remote and distant, since they address issues that seem years away from becoming a problem when you look at our current state of robotic development. They feel more like science fiction than anything else, and they are hard to view as actual problems we would have to deal with today. Yet many experts suggest that the public will have to face a large number of these questions and dilemmas within the decade.
Although science fiction authors have done their guess work and experts in the field have done their predicting, the future of AI and its place in global society is still a big question mark. The current problems posed by AI are certainly the most pressing to resolve, but they are not nearly as spectacular or as far reaching as those predicted and anticipated in the future.
AI is still a budding technology, and few of the known problems have been worked on let alone resolved. That will probably change as the technology grows, raising more numerous and more pressing conundrums. Until then, here are a few situations and problems for you to consider.
