Artificial intelligence (AI) is emerging, once again, as one of the most hotly debated technologies on the horizon. This horizon is getting closer and, in some application areas, AI is already here.

Most of the time, however, experts can imagine a range of possible outcomes of AI development, and are calling for more serious reflection on how we can meet the challenges and opportunities it presents and ensure a responsible development path.
