ABOUT THE AUTHOR
The literature on the ethical and social implications of “artificial intelligence” is enormous and has spread to every topic touched by computing. In The Ethics of AI and Robotics: A Buddhist Viewpoint, Thai scholar Soraj
Hongladarom demonstrates a wide familiarity with the breadth of this literature and uses Buddhist ideas to provide pointers to “ethical AI.”— Journal Of Buddhist Ethics
This book approaches ethical issues in AI and robotics from a refreshingly different perspective and is a major contribution to the application of Buddhism to discussions of the ethics and philosophy of AI. It is written in an engaging style and the Buddhist perspective challenges one to look at problems in new ways. It should be required reading for anyone working in this field. — John Weckert, Professor of Computer Ethics, Charles Sturt University
