Week 3: Forecasting Skills: See the Future Before it Happens Quiz Answers

Quiz 1: The Future of Machines

Q1. In this week’s readings, you encountered three new scenarios about the future of machines.

In the scenario “Machines as Consumers”, what is different about this future?

Instead of deciding what to buy for themselves, most people let artificially intelligent “personal assistants” do their shopping for them.

Q2. In the scenario “Machines as Criminals”, what’s different in this future?

It proves impossible to teach ethical decision-making to robots and AI. As a result, most “smart” machines behave in ways that are criminal or in violation of human values, and the production of “bad” machines is banned.

Q3. In the scenario “Machines as Conscience”, what is different in this future?

A new AI called the “Digital Consequence Awareness System” helps people understand the ripple effects and long-term consequences of their actions, so they can behave more ethically.
