Ethical implications for AI
Ethical concerns include:
But see Stephen Downes Commenting on Mind the Ethics Gap – https://ammienoot.com/brain-fluff/mind-the-ethics-gap/ And saying “Those arguing for ethics in educational operation (and I am one) have to respond to a wide array of ethical challenges, such as accessibility and inclusion, and not merely more narrow concerns about commodification, market forces and privacy (which, if I may say perhaps a bit boldly, are very much first-world problems).”

WEB ARTICLE: AI is Chaging the world – who will change AI
- Description: Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology is changing our world, but the workforces behind the cutting-edge systems produced are inconceivably male-dominated. This is not simply an issue because of the lost talent of capable women; it is also a much wider problem of future technology being shaped by a small section of society with a singular worldview. If AI systems only reflect white, male programmers, will AI systems actually be useful for our diverse world?
