As advances in AI occur at a rapid pace, there is a growing need for us to explore and understand what impact these will have on society. Policymakers, opinion leaders, researchers, and the general public have many questions. Can we distinguish between actions and behavior of an AI system? Who or what is responsible for the behavior of an AI systems? Can a machine be held accountable for its behavior? How can the robot learn to be social in a sensitive situation like a school? Can the robot have a negative effect on children’s social skills? Can being entrusted to the care of a robot harm the dignity of the elderly person? This issue of Scenari intends to open a new debate on these questions, especially from a post-phenomenological point of view. The central goal is to understand how post-phenomenology elaborates the problem of AI ethics.
