The Ethical Dimension of Artificial IntelligenceGökçe Karahan Adalı
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is based on technologies that have the potential to dramatically enhance productivity and ,-facilitate decision processes for decision makers. AI influences almost every aspect of our lives. However, when this potential for AI is accepted, not only technical but also ethical consequences are inevitable. Technology always brings benefits and risks. AI has the same benefits and risks. An innovative and significant aspect of AI is machine ethics. The creation of a machine that abides by the standards specified in a perfect ethical framework is the ultimate objective of machine ethics. These concepts serve as a guide for the potential course of action. The spread of artificial intelligence applications, which have been used in many areas, has caused ethical dilemmas and some concerns. Studies have have started to keep the behavior of intelligent machines under control and to put them intoto a certain framework. This article aims to provide an overview of artificial intelligence, a high-level conceptual treatment of the subject by introducing fundamental ideas, and to outline strategies, and key themes in AI ethics. This study provides an insight into the critical debate on the ethical use of AI. Some key ethical issues identified in this paper include the legal identity of autonomous machines, the legal problems arising from AI, and the solution proposals with application examples.
