Smart assistants like Siri, Google Home, and Amazon Echo could soon be implemented with a “moral AI” to decide whether to report their owners for breaking the law.

Scientists at the University of Bergen, Norway proposed the incredibly Orwellian idea of inserting morals into A.I. code at the ACM conference in Hawaii on Artificial Intelligence, Ethics and Society, Dailymail reported.

The researchers are pushing for what’s being deemed, enhanced ethical smart software that could be potentially one of the most dangerous implementations into these home assistants leading them to become sentient and deciding human beings’ fates; and not just any human beings, their own owners. As a result, millions of people would be under constant surveillance not even requiring a snitch program like Amazon’s Ring doorbell spyware as Activist Post previously reported.

No, instead, little tin cans would be doing the watching that are sold as alleged “home assistants.”

The research was led by Marija Slavkovik, an associate professor in the department of information science and media studies. As well as by two other professors at the University of Luxembourg and Zhejiang University, Leon van der Torre and Beishui Liao.

According to the publication, Slavkovik recommended that these digital accessories be implanted with “ethical awareness that simultaneously represents both the owner and the authorities – or, in the case of a minor, their parents. ”

“This would let them to weigh-up whether to report illegal activity to the police, effectively putting millions of people under constant surveillance,” the Daily Mail explained, adding that Dr. Marija Slavkovik, who led the research, “suggested that digital assistants should possess an ethical awareness that simultaneously represents both the owner and the authorities — or, in the case of a minor, their parents.”

That’s right, telling Big Brother isn’t enough, they want to replace human being babysitters and parents with robots too.

Is there any job that robots won’t take over? Probably not, as this writer has detailed consistently for months that advancements in robotics and A.I. is taking jobs daily more and more.
