Studenteropgave: Basisprojekt


This project examines artificial intelligence and its impact on the relation between humans and robots. It goes to show the complications that happen, when we prefer robot relationships to human relationships, and which ethical issues the programming of artificial intelligent robots present. With the television show Westworld as our case, we do a thorough analysis in order to understand the robotic and human relationships. This results in a conclusion on how they seem to be troubling for humans, due to the robots lack of human emotions and empathy skills. Furthermore, we analyse arguments from several acknowledged experts in the field, in order to bring their points of view into a discussion. This results in a discussion of the themes Westworld present and how it paints a picture of the ethical obligations we face, as the technological field expands. We therefore look at both the psychological and philosophical aspects of the complications and how they make for an important discussion in regards to our future society. We hereby conclude, how Westworld portrays, whether intended or not, a dystopian picture of the future complications we will face, if we merely act passive in regards to the technological evolution. However, the arguments come to show, how the technology of today is nowhere near as developed as the technology depicted in Westworld, which can lead to a disproportionate discussion. Despite this, we can conclude through our analysis and discussion, how it seems to be necessary for a debate, which does require certain scepticism, in order to find the right restrictions, that won’t allow artificial intelligence to overpower humans.
