yes, an ethics committee is definitely needed for AI. And as soon as possible. Take the example of self-driving cars. It’s the AI that will have to decide whether to hit the child who ran on the road to catch his ball, rather than risk the life of those on board (you and your 2 children) slamming into that tree on the left. Honestly i wouldn’t wanna be the coder who will have to decide on that algorithm. That’s why it’s urgent to introduce ethics and philosophy into this debate.
