Autonomous decision systems: opportunity or threat?

10:40 - 11:10 Monday 21 September


Systems that are based on Artificial Intelligence have reached levels of competence in decision-making that in many aspects are equal, when they do not exceed, to people. The Autonomous Decision Systems can increase the capacity and efficiency of people in their own fields of action, they could also replace them, something that concerns the whole of the Society.
Thus, when it comes to avoid the possible dysfunctions of these systems, both about functioning and of substitution people, we can consider that it is a social, scientific and technological goal, which makes more necessary than ever to have models that collect all the richness and variety of decision problems that we must face and address the ethical approaches that should guide its operation. In this conference we would try to touch all these points.
