Core functions of our communications systems are increasingly reliant on AI, a technology that might well reshape our normative universe. In this chapter, we explore how automation can shift critical normative presuppositions, by reconfiguring our social relationships and the architecture of our communities. Moreover, questions about autonomy, choice, and control need to be rethought as core decisions in our communications systems are increasingly delegated to AI. These transformations also raise a host of challenges for the pursuit of justice: How must responsibility be allocated, and what can be done to monitor such systems for unexpected and inimical outcomes, especially in the diverse social settings where they are deployed.
