Billions of dollars are spent every year to track our actions, intentions, and sentiments online and via the sensors embedded in the world that surrounds us. Machine-learning algorithms may soon get to know us better than we know ourselves. While robots gaining consciousness is a growing concern, the future of human happiness is dependent on teaching machines what we value the most today.

As AI features in different products, wearable devices, and self-driving cars, we need to think in a critical way about where this will bring us - on an individual and societal level. Will it help us forward? Will it create more time for ourselves? Or will it make our world more complex and less efficient?

Coexisting safely and ethically with intelligent machines is one of the central challenges of the 21st Century. It demonstrates and strengthen the need to establish ethical standards for Artificial Intelligence to help us preserve the values we cherish the most.
