Graduate students from the humanities and the sciences explore the intersection of ethics and artificial intelligence (AI) in a collaborative environment with academic researchers and industry leaders. Through presentations, case studies, short readings, debate and discussion, participants develop an awareness of the issues at stake. Graduate students will:
- Understand and critically evaluate the ethical and social implications of emerging technologies related to artificial intelligence and machine learning;
- Investigate how their personal research background can meaningfully inform the public debate on AI Ethics, and how that research background may provide an entryway into diverse career paths into the public and private sector;
- Gain practical insights into (i) the tech industry and into (ii) technology policy-making, and practice professional skills required for successfully engaging with (i) and (ii), for instance by attending relevant events and conferences, writing for a broad audience, and pursuing job and internship opportunities related to AI Ethics.
