Summary of his presentation:
Artificial intelligence raises many ethical issues. One of them is responsibility: how to deal with the question of responsibility when (previously) human activities are automated? This talk gives an overview of ethical issues raised by AI and discusses the question of responsibility in the light of automation. It is argued that we need a relational and global approach to responsibility.
