The Singularity–the advent of a smarter than human artificial intelligence–is raising many questions. One in particular is what influence will we have over the moral and ethical values a sentient AI will have. Personally, I think our daily actions, not our words, philosophy or programming will have more impact on a sentient AI’s interaction with our world than any other influence. That’s not always an encouraging thought. Check out the debate at The Singularity Institute for Artificial Intelligence.
