Abstract
  • Artificial Intelligence has gained resurgence in popularity through machine learning methods. This thesis investigates the current use of AI, the impact it will have on the economy and the ethical considerations for developing this technology. In the coming decade AI could increase global economic output over $10 Trillion. AI will improve data analytics, lead to wide scale deployment of intelligent devices and enable tools for scientific discoveries. In contrast, AI may create income disparities between occupations and job volatility for up to half of workers. Popular debate centers on long term consequences of advanced AI; however, current technology poses widescale ethical risks. Policies need to address transparency with the public sphere on the current implications of AI technology.
