Chuan-Kang Ting《Technological Classification // AI & Ethics》
Summary As artificial intelligence rapidly develops and enhances human’s quality of life, another cause for concern is the dangers and possible threats to humanity. “Moral judgement” will be a big issue that needs to be addressed as these intelligent machines become more and more prevalent in society. As with any new technologies, the topic of applied ethics often arises. So, the extension of that is AI ethics issues.

Since 2018, a website of “AI Ethics has been set up as well as an Artificial Intelligence Ethics Project, co-chaired by Nat’l Tsing Hua Univ. Prof. Chuan-Kang Ting and Nat’l Chung Cheng Univ. Prof. Ser-Min Shei. The website has various scenarios to allow testers to choose what actions to take during various situations, including: self-driving cars, medical care, organ transplants, etc. The main purpose of developing AI is to assist human beings to solve problems more efficiently. Thus, decisions made by AI can hopefully be consistent with human values. Prof. Ting has been selected as Editor in Chief for IEEE Computational Intelligence Magazine for 2020.
This project designs and develops artificial intelligence technology. It has begun to explore the ethical value of human beings, review ethical philosophy theory, and create an ethical case library. At present 33,553 data have been collected and combined with artificial intelligence systems (including evolutionary computing, machine learning, Fuzzy set inference, grouping with data) to establish an ethical system. Through joint research, new directions and opportunities for the research of artificial intelligence ethics modules are opened, making AI judgments more intelligent and consistent with the ethical value of human beings, and letting AI help humans move towards a longer-term future together.
