La llegada de inteligencias artificiales ―que acompañen a las personas vulnerables e incluso sean nuestros amigos y amantes, por ejemplo― es cada vez menos un sueño lejano, por lo que muchas de estas cuestiones éticas han de plantearse en un horizonte temporal a medio plazo, entre los problemas actuales y la hipotética llegada de la inteligencia artificial general. Plantearse las cuestiones correctas es una labor muy complicada en general, y más si cabe en el campo de la inteligencia artificial, lleno (...) de declaraciones y anuncios rimbombantes por parte de expertos, conspiraciones y miedos basados en las historias de ciencia ficción y un temor bien fundado a la luz del creciente número de escándalos causados por las malas prácticas de los proveedores de servicios a la hora de gestionar los datos que extraen de nuestra actividad en la red. La intención del presente trabajo es exponer una serie de problemas cuyo tratamiento normalmente queda en un segundo plano en la bibliografía a favor de otros debates, con el fin de contribuir a una visión más informada y crítica de la tecnología que parece que está por llegar para combatir el escepticismo basado en creencias de ciencia ficción y despertar un escepticismo bien informado.
