Moral and Ethical Aspects of AI

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has the potential to be one of the greatest changes in humanity since we evolved from homo sapiens. AI is here now and can help in a variety of areas, from saving lives, to streamlining businesses, to helping every single individual with small advice. AI gives us superpowers to make better decisions and do what we ourselves are not so good at. This suddenly develops humanity from what we were yesterday to a new graduated state. Just as industrialization gave us physical superpowers, AI gives us mental superpowers.

In this workshop we will work with the moral and ethical aspects of AI, not the technical details. How should we relate to AI in society when it suddenly takes decisions that were previously taken by a person who can be directly life-determining or who can remove 50% of the jobs we have today.

As preparation you can do the Moral Machine from MIT and read the interview with Conny Svensson Head of Digital Transformation at CGI.
