Abstract

It is clear that Artificial Intelligence is a rapidly growing and developing science of the future. Since its first appearance, it has gained more and more power and enrolled all fields of the modern life to provide effective and efficient solutions for the encountered problems. But as it still improves day by day with an almost infinite flexibility, one important question is based on its ethical and safe applications. Today, there is a remarkable anxiety about what if intelligent systems will be able to perform dangerous actions causing an existential risk for humankind. Of course this question can cover all other living organisms and even the World. One important point here is associated with also possibilities on developing badly configured intelligent systems. Because of the importance of this mentioned state, there is a remarkable research effort to find out how to eliminate the related problems considered under some topics like Machine Ethics and Artificial Intelligence Safety. In this context, objective of this paper is to focus on moral dilemma and discuss about them by considering both human and Artificial Intelligence factors. In detail, the paper provides some examples of moral dilemmas that both us and intelligent systems may encounter and try to figure out which actions - reactions can be seen as differently.
