Abstract: Artificial intelligence is incorporated in our everyday lives more and more each day. We are using smartphones to conduct business, computers to learn information, we are driving smart cars with different apps and motion sensors. This is not a science-fiction movie, it is a reality. A reality which will progress in different fields and aspects, and it will not stop here. As much as it is interesting and helpful and improving our lives in any aspect or segment, there are many risks that are hindering in the background. Incorporating and improving Artificial Intelligence as a tool or mechanism for weapons or being able independently to make decisions on any level is not responsible or ethic and hopefully it will never be used by officials. Machines are not humans and they will never be able to manifest feelings or to differentiate what is right from wrong, they will never be able to be moral or ethical, to feel sorrow or pain. Just imagine living up to a machine to decide whether or not to press the button to lunch a missile. That is why all the world powers, International organizations and other actors should incorporate common AI standards, laws and ethics in order to use AI for improving the economical, commercial and social standards of life but not the political, lawful, security and decision-making processes. The national and world politics should be conducted by human beings like it was done so far, because, no matter how smart or sophisticated machine is, AI will always be just that, a machine.
