The unexpected impact of AI on animals

by Big Think I2:06 pm, 12th October

Philosopher Peter Singer explores the impact of AI on animals, using historical parallels in how humans have previously used technology to exploit nature.

He discusses AI's current applications in factory farming and wildlife management, which are already raising ethical concerns. Singer believes AI should not only serve human interests, and that we should consider how it impacts all sentient beings as we continue to develop it.

He also delves into the philosophical question of AI surpassing human intelligence, its potential consciousness, and moral status, emphasizing the need for government standards akin to animal welfare regulations.
