Artificial intelligence can be convincingly human-like when it writes news or even poetry, but what ethical issues does this raise for the future of AI? The modern world’s advances in artificial intelligence have left many grappling with some profoundly difficult ethical questions. Questions like: if a collision is unavoidable, should a driverless car swerve to hit two elderly women or one young man? A rule-abiding pedestrian or a jaywalking teenager? One blue-collar worker or twelve dogs? AI language models can now finish your sentence (“I think that cats are … more than just a cute animal”) or your paragraph (“They’re also a wonderful source of nutrients.”) They can approximate a news report or a poem.
