Abstract / Summary

Artificial intelligent (AI) systems making autonomous decisions are present in many areas of our everyday lives. Ideally, and in order to facilitate the integration of these systems into our society, citizens should avoid thinking neither that AI resembles those rogue systems often found in fictional works, nor that it has an intrinsic understanding of human well-being, as both cases would draw a biased picture of what AI actually is. This position paper argues, through some examples, how the terminology used in certain articles aimed for the general public often depict AI as one of those two aforementioned images, which attribute intentions and moral values that those systems do not have and which could, in turn, have a detrimental effect on the way the general public understand (and are willing to accept) those systems into our everyday lives.
