Ethics and Privacy I: Facial Recognition and Robotics

  • Rosario Girasa


AI has raised major ethics and privacy concerns. We discuss briefly the meaning of ethics and privacy; how facial recognition programs pose possible major threats to privacy as exemplified by China’s photographing of potential naysayers in certain provinces; Alexa and comparable programs which may encode conversations and events that inhabitants are not aware of and may become subject to government seizure and use in criminal proceedings; Amazon’s Recognition program; a Code of Ethics for AI; fear of robotics’ domination of human persons; autonomous lethal weapons; and AI peace initiatives by Peace Machine, the United Nations, and the International Peace Institute.
