Acceptance of Artificially Intelligent Autonomous Self-Governing Technology (AIASGT): A Qualitative Case Study
by Carmack, Robert Carmack, Ph.D., Northcentral University, 2016, 154; 10244826
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this qualitative study was to examine the acceptance and use of Artificially Intelligent Autonomous Self-Governing Technology (AIASGT). AIASGT will give machines full autonomy, allowing them to make independent decisions without any human intervention. No empirical research has been found regarding the impact of what has been described as technology creep associated with the assimilation of sophisticated Artificial Intelligence (AI) into autonomous systems. The focus of this study was on the assimilation of AI into self-governing systems that are utilized by members of the American Legion (AL). The AL sample pool was of those who have used self-governing technology. Data collection began with a general search for a purposeful sample of 10 retired or separated military personnel from the AL. The expectation was that the study would show that the rules and regulations currently in place for technology assimilation and development do not adequately address AIASGT. The analysis of the findings of the study revealed the effect of AIASGT may have on the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM). The recommendation is to specifically consider AIASGT in all technology acceptance models. Another recommendation is for the creation of a regulatory commission that will monitor and control AIASGT. The consequence of not having the right constraints in place may become increasingly difficult to correct.
