Who is afraid of AI? Should we be? AI can make our lives more convenient and efficient, but there’s much to be concerned about from an ethical perspective - our privacy being the most obvious (are Alexa and Siri spying on us?) but also more subtle problems such as implicit biases in its designs that cements and creates injustices. For example, who should self driving cars save and sacrifice? Who should make those decisions? And as AI becomes more human-like, how should we treat them?
