In the contemporary digital society, artificial intelligence has an increasingly significant role in making decisions instead of humans. However, are they made in the name of humanity? What about the ethical and moral dimensions of such choices?

As a technology-driven society, we are facing new challenges related to “machine ethics” paradigm in designing future autonomous systems and devices. The intention of Syntropic Counterpoints is to expose artificial intelligence cyber clones to some of the crucial topics for humankind and future of the society.
