The attention for ethical problems of AI has rapidly increased in the last two years. At the same time the geo-political debates about digital sovereignty have become very prominent. Different parts of the world have different different images of man and models of society, and have therefore different views on how AI can and should be used and applied, which ethical issues are serious and which ones trivial. I will provide an overview of the ethical debates about AI, discuss the main ideas of Designing AI applications for moral Values, Responsible Innovation in Health Care with AI, proposals for Trustworthy AI as proposed by the High Level Group of the European Commission and indicate what some of the fundamental ethical problems of AI are that will be with us for quite some time.
