Oxford philosopher Paula Boddington delivers a reference-grade volume that is timely, helpful, and clear.
This is the first book about codified ethics for AI. There’s a general belief that ethics are essential in guiding how such a powerful yet unknown technology will evolve. And while directed to AI, many of the principles in this book will suit other domains.
Boddington applies real-world practicality and how to use ethics as guardrails instead of tablets. She is a philosopher based in the Oxford computer science faculty. The tugs between philosophical and applied approaches
Near the end she shows how her thinking works in a real situation. She analyses a code developed by the Future of Life Institute, an advocate for ‘beneficial AI.
The table of contents doubles as a road map to the moral issues we face with intelligent machines. This can be a go-to resource after first reading.
