AI Human Impact and Ethical Investing


Will humans conform to AI, or will AI conform to us? One way for investors to participate in the decision is by privileging those AI-intensive companies that serve humanitarian purposes. To develop this investment strategy, several dilemmas and paradoxes of today’s AI ethics will be illustrated. Then they will be resolved within a set of categories for evaluation that produce real-world determinations about which companies are worth human-centered investment.
