Abstract

In this article, three potential drawbacks of artificial intelligence are analyzed: (1) the use of artificial intelligence may have unforseen and undesirable consequences; (2) it may be unclear who is responsible for computerbased errors, while it is not always possible to avoid those errors; (3) artificial intelligence may incorporate hidden values which influence our world view and self-image. The analysis shows that many (but not all) of the negative consequences of artificial intelligence can be avoided. The author warns, however, against the messianic expectations of some computer-apostles, who provide us with a misleading and potentially dangerous picture of the alleged blessings of artificial intelligence.
