Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence, Moral Machines and Halakhah was approved by the CJLS on June 19, 2019. I surveyed the field of machine ethics and brought it into conversation with halakhic discourses of agency, damages, limited liability and ethics. I concluded that while AI and autonomous machines may provide valuable assistance to humans in making and implementing momentous decisions, a human must remain responsible, especially for matters of life and death. The boundary between human and artificial life is significant and must be maintained.
