Artificial Intelligence for a Better Future: An Ecosystem Perspective on the Ethics of AI and Emerging Digital Technologies


This book offers a novel approach to Artificial Intelligence (AI) ethics. It discusses the many advantages as well as undesirable and ethically problematic consequences. The key question is: how can we benefit from AI while addressing its ethical problems? This results in a different perspective: AI as a system of ecosystems, consisting of numerous interdependent technologies, applications and stakeholders. Drawing on rich empirical insights and detailed conceptual analysis, it suggests practical measures to ensure that AI is used to make the world a better place.
