Artificial intelligence (AI) is usually understood as the ability for a machine to display human-like capabilities such as reasoning, learning, planning and creativity. The 'Holy Grail' for many governments and companies seeking to benefit from the digital revolution, the first to invent and apply true AI could achieve an enormous advantage in economic and military terms.

However, there are serious ethical implications in such potential developments.

Current versions of AI help to drive cars, beat chess champions, and offer excellent medical diagnostics, to take a few examples.
