AI Ethics in Creativity Support Team

Team Leader: Koichi Hori (D.Eng.)
Koichi  Hori(D.Eng.)

In the studies of creativity support, artificial intelligence has played the role of 'intelligence amplifiers'. Intelligence amplifiers work not as human substitute but as tools to support human intelligent activities. Since they are tools, people have thought they do not cause as much problems as the artificial intelligence substituting the humans. But, in reality, ethical problems are emerging even in the tools. We should discuss how far tools should play the roles in supporting human activities. We are going to have open dialogue across the different sectors of people on the relations between the humans and the artificial intelligence as the intelligence amplifiers.
