Introduction to the discussion
As information and communication technology advances, discussions on artificial intelligence and ethics have become active.
This is because the evolution of artificial intelligence has created new problems regarding ethics.
There are myriads of topics that need to be discussed, such as the appearance of artificial intelligence that deviates from human ethics and the responsibilities of artificial intelligence when it goes against the law.
Finding the problem
Artificial intelligence issues only reflect the viewpoint of engineers and rulers, that is, the viewpoint of developing artificial intelligence and enjoying the benefits.
The current issues do lack the viewpoint of the general people who are the majority, that is, the people who coexist with artificial intelligence.
Certainly, artificial intelligence and ethics are sometimes in conflict.
Because ethics is a norm that serves as a standard for judging good and evil in society and it is to be observed as a person.
Therefore, I believe that the public perspective is an essential element to study the issues regarding artificial intelligence and ethics.
Therefore, I would like to study the issues regarding artificial intelligence and ethics from a public viewpoint.
For that purpose, I believe that it is essential to learn various kinds of values including philosophy, informatics, ethics.
Examining the conclusion
By studying with Associate Professor Yasuhiro Miyashiro, who is familiar with philosophy, politics and foreign cultures, and by touching research in a wide range of fields, I am sure that I could obtain various perspectives regarding my research and it would open up new horizons for me.
Therefore, I believe that Keio University’s Faculty of Policy Management is the most suitable place for pursuing my research and social contributions, and I am aspiring to enter your school and study in your laboratory.
