Teaching AI the Ethics

Imagine an AI uttering these words— “I could help rule the world better than any human alone.” This is the mere beginning of the nightmare, and no person in his sane mind would want this to happen. A Spanish company is all set to teach “ethics” to the AI.

Teaching AI the Ethics
Ethical Policing For AI

The Spanish company Acuilae has announced their ground-breaking inauguration of ETHYKA: the first ever component in AI that has potential to analyze differently complicated dilemmas for improving decision-making skills of artificial intelligence, avoiding corruption, and optimizing their functionality.

It achieves this by following various decision-making criteria, ethical standards, and models of human behavior.

Researchers from Britain as well as Spain have collectively conducted research and designing of the module.

Consciousness development in artificial intelligence

Intellectuals currently are disquieted about the development of consciousness in artificial intelligence. Developing consciousness in robots and making them capable of performing counterproductive actions are two different things. However, the question is still persistent: how ethics is going to be included in AI?

Until now, AI that is domain-specific focuses on single specific task solving algorithms. Even though these algorithms are more efficient than humans when executing the task, they lack the ability to perform the tasks beyond the reason they were encoded.

Developed by Acuilae, ETHYKA aims to provide artificial intelligence with ethics, making sure that in the forthcoming time, actions consequential of data analysis will be accomplished through ethical decisions and choices.

Concept of ETHYKA

Incorporating the ethics into the designs of AI, ETHYKA solves the urgent need of applying ethics to artificial intelligence. It does not talk about the mere introduction of a program that competes with specific functions or human behaviors, but it can also solve the puzzle of what kind of ethical behavior should automated systems, machines, and robots should exhibit.

The scientists envisage the incorporation of ETHYKA in new products will be mandatory for the organizations that deal with production and development of technology based on AI.

The solution for potential ethical ‘corruption’

Not only humans but robots also tend to get corrupted (if they stay in contact with humans!). The interaction of bots, virtual assistants, and robots with machine learning tend to show this type of behavioral glitch.

ETHYKA focuses on solving the concern of latent moral “corruption” of an autonomous learning system in contact with humans. Simultaneously, it is designed to cater to the improvisation of decision-making skills of autonomous systems like robots, vehicles, or drones, and hybrid man-machine systems.

The purview of ETHYKA allows it to implement moral and ethical models in AI systems smoothly. It is compatible with autonomous units, virtual units or simply in web services and app too.

ETHYKA offers an interface and a frame of reference to the developers allowing them quick implementation, full customization, and provision of the ethical component in their hardware and software projects. The entire package comes in a trained, configured, ready to install package.

Architectural Framework of ETHYKA

It is a module that has been developed and designed to resolve the decision-making problems under the guise of ethical dilemmas that are prevalent in various fields throughout the society. For instance, in the professional field (education, medicine, or justice) on means of transport (metro, planes, or cars) in cultural and social fields (theatres, museums, or care of adults), as well as many others.

Developers of ETHYKA

ETHYKA is the brainchild of the Spanish company Acuilae, which works with multidisciplinary professionals in cutting-edge technologies.
