Is There a Technology-Based Responsibility Gap?


Recently, some philosophers have claimed that developments in artificially intelligent (AI) technologies are creating a so-called “responsibility gap,” which is allegedly ever-widening and stands to undermine both the moral and legal frameworks of our society. The most pessimistic are calling for a drastic scaling-back or complete moratorium on AI systems, while the optimists aim to show that the gap can be bridged nonetheless. I aim to step back and question whether or not there is a technology-based responsibility gap.
