We are surrounded by artificial intelligence. After all, this is the age of big data and machine learning. Granted, our AIs donÔÇÖt go around on their own; they go around through us&-in our pockets, in our cars, in our homes. From the Google search engine, to personal assistants like Siri, Cortana, and Google Assistant, to our own Facebook feed. We not only tolerate artificial intelligence, but we inadvertently depend on it with our studies, work, personal relationships, and consumer decisions. As AI becomes an increasingly indispensable part of human existence, we will be confronted with a looming issue. That of ethics. Artificial Intelligence promises business, technological, and healthcare improvements, but it also paves the way for advanced warfare and countless socio-economic issues. There is a thin line between useful and harmful, if there is even a line at all. Especially considering that an action need not be harmful to have harmful consequences. It seems to us at 365 Data Science that the pillars of the debate about ethics in AI are made up of four concepts: autonomy, trust, power, and accountability. While the phrase "Artificial Intelligence and Ethics" constitutes interesting dinner conversation, the oral debate has its limitations. Given the weight of the topic, we would like you to consider the benefits of the short essay for this discussion: brief, argumentative, and expressive.
