Abstract
The adoption of increasingly powerful and flexible machines developed
within artificial intelligence, like agencies, envisages a novel
anthropological framework of man and his relation to machines. The paper
aims to present some innovative ethical observations that are stimulated by
this new anthropological framework.
1 Introduction
The growing impact of computer science on human society stimulates
several ethical considerations that are enriched and enhanced when we
