AI and Ethics
This study aimed to investigate the decision-making abilities of ChatGPT-3, an artificial intelligence (AI) system, in ethical dilemmas, with a focus on understanding the implications of ethical considerations in AI development. Utilizing a within-subject design, participants were presented with three ethical dilemmas, each involving conflicts between various values. These scenarios were also run through ChatGPT-3 for comparison. Notable differences were found between the decision-making processes of humans and ChatGPT-3, especially in situations where moral choices were distinctly labeled as good or evil and directed towards a promising outcome. The implications of these findings are significant, offering insights to inform AI development by stressing the importance of incorporating ethical theories and processes in AI systems. This is a crucial step towards the goal of designing AI models that are more ethically aware. Furthermore, this study draws attention to the ethical impacts of AI usage, aiding policymakers and regulators in making educated decisions about the part AI should play in decision-making and regulation in ethically important contexts.
