The Presque Isle CPCU Society Chapter partnered with Dr. Veljko Dubljevic for a presentation on the ethics and morality of artificial intelligence (AI), including the future use of autonomous vehicles. Dr. Dubljevic, Ph.D., D. Phil. is Assistant Professor of Philosophy, and Science Technology and Society (STS), at North Carolina State University.
Dr. Dubljevic’s presentation highlighted several issues:
- How to make sure AI technology implementation is fair & transparent.
- Who should be held accountable for negative consequences?
- Can artificial intelligence be programmed to behave ethically?
- His team worked with experts to gain opinions regarding the possible impact of autonomous vehicles to gain operational evidence regarding the moral, social, and economic benefits and harms of AVs.
- Their team studied the alternatives of maintaining current regulations; placing more regulations on privately owned companies; or having more public regulation regarding autonomous vehicles.
- They are recommending that state legislatures and the federal government incorporate their studies and research to help in determining the future safety, societal, environmental, insurance, and ethical impacts of artificial intelligence, including the introduction of autonomous vehicles to the roadways.
