Recently, Luke Munn attacked “AI ethics” generally, or guidelines, principles, codes of ethics, ethical frameworks. In particular, he argued that ethical guidelines are useless. Here I respond to this critique, arguing that Munn’s criticism is mostly unfair and misguided, and that his own proposal is already implemented in various guidelines.
