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 non-academic career paths into the public and private sector;
- Gain practical insights into (i) the tech industry and into (ii) technology policy-making, and practice non-academic skills required for successfully engaging with (i) and (ii), for instance by attending relevant events and conferences, writing for a non-academic audience, and pursuing job and internship opportunities related to AI Ethics.
