AI Ethics in Next Generation Wireless Networks: A Philosophical Outlook


Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms are playing a great role in modern society nowadays. Developing AI-based algorithms more intelligent than humans, for example, it has beaten humans in many specific domains such as chess, and ensuring the use of their advanced intelligence for good rather than bad raises a lot of ethical issues including safety, security, privacy, human dignity, etc. Next-Generation Wireless Communication Networks (NGWNs) is one of the growing areas where new technologies are emerging, for example, 6G from 5G and deploys AI techniques such as Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) for generating synthetic data in order to develop data-driven models, for example, real-time resource allocation, channel modelling, etc. Consequentialism decides that an action is good or bad depending on its outcome. To that end, this paper presents an overview of AI ethics in the context of wireless networks and investigates how AI ethics is related to AI from the philosophical perspective. It focuses on the ethical implications and moral questions that arise from the development and deployment of AI algorithms. Further, it verifies the claim that consequentialism drives AI, by addressing the possible impacts of deploying AI-based algorithms on society. It also verifies its ethical feasibility with the famous German philosopher Immanuel Kant, who defines ethics as “act as you would want all other people to act towards all other people”. Several ethical initiatives taken by countries across the globe to address the ethical concerns and issues emerging in relation to AI-based algorithms are also reviewed.
