In the world of science, everyday scientists are figuring out new ways to make technology greater so that life for us humans can be better. One of the major areas of innovation that scientists are continuing to improve upon is Artificial Intelligence. For this essay, the topic of ethics that I chose to write about is the Case Study on Artificial Intelligence; I chose this topic because I felt like it was the most important and interesting one. There are many different views and ideas concerning the subject of Artificial Intelligence and this paper will outline a few of the benefits and drawbacks associated with Artificial Intelligence and whether or not it is moral or ethical. First, what is Artificial Intelligence (AI)? According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, Artificial Intelligence is the “capability of a machine to imitate intelligent human behavior”. The concept of Artificial Intelligence has been around for a long time; in fact, “the ancient Greeks had myths about robots, and Chinese and Egyptian engineers built automatons” (Lewis). Although the theory of Artificial Intelligence had been around for ages, the term “Artificial Intelligence” was not coined until 1955 by John McCarthy who was a professor of Computer Science at Stanford and is viewed as the “Father of Artificial Intelligence” (Myers). He invented the computer programming language LISP which is still used today and happens to be the programming language of choice for artificial intelligence (Myers).
