For example, if AI is requested to eliminate cancer from the whole world.After processing and calculating data it might come up with a formula or might end up killingeverybody who has cancer, but this is not what human would have intended.Singularity– It might be possible that one day AI might become more intelligent thanhuman beings and this is what is known as “Singularity”, that point of time when humanswill no longer remain most intelligent beings.Robot Rights– Neuroscientists are working to know the secrets of conscious mind. Humansunderstand the basic machineries like rewards, hatred etc. and even share these with meekanimals. Same mechanisms of aversion and rewards are also being used in the case of AI,where enhanced performance is strengthened with rewards that are virtual.Link to the Article:https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2016/10/top-10-ethical-issues-in-artificial-intelligence/
