Abstract

[As Artificial Intelligence technology seems poised for a major take-off and changing societal dynamics are creating a high demand for caregivers for elders, children, and those infirmed, AI-based robotic caregivers may well be used much more often. This chapter examines the ethical concerns raised by the use of AI caregivers and concludes that many of these concerns are avoided when AI caregivers operate as partners to human caregivers rather than substitutes. Furthermore, most of the remaining concerns are minor and are faced by human caregivers as well. The chapter then argues that because AI caregivers’ systems are learning systems that could therefore stray from their initial guidelines, a layer of AI-based oversight is necessary to protect patients. Such layers of oversight are already employed across many areas of human service provision, and a similar method could help to ensure that AI caregivers act in ways that are ethical, legal, and in accordance with predetermined guidelines.]
