Abstract

The general objective of the research was to determine the advances related to the Ethics of Artificial Intelligence. The most powerful countries are investing large amounts of economic resources in the development of artificial intelligence. Methodology, in this research, 49 documents have been selected, carried out in the period 2018 - 2023; including: scientific articles, review articles and information from websites of recognized organizations. Results, the ethics of artificial intelligence is supported by various countries. Furthermore, ChatGPT is considered a major threat in the automation of academic document preparation. Conclusions, about the general objective of the research is to determine the advances related to the Ethics of Artificial Intelligence, it is important to consider the transparency and risks of applying AI. In addition, consider ethical aspects such as the Recommendation on the Ethics of Artificial Intelligence was adopted by UNESCO's General Conference at its 41st session. The European Union (EU) is considering a new legal framework about regulations on the development and use of artificial intelligence.

About the first specific objective of the research was to identify the countries that invest the most money in artificial intelligence, there are Japan, Singapore, China, India, Russia, Australia, Unite States of America, and the European Union. About the second specific objective of the research was to determine the risks and requirements of artificial intelligence, the risks are black-box models, privacy violations, bias and discrimination and the requirements are algorithmic transparency, human understandable explanations, privacy-preserving algorithms, data cooperatives, algorithmic fairness.
