Artificial Intelligence and Ethics in Design

  • Course Program

The ethics of artificial intelligence is a hot topic, sparking much admiration, concern, conversation, and potential regulation as this technology evolves. To help move beyond both the fear and the uncritical admiration, the IEEE Global Initiative for Ethical Considerations in Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Systems (AI/AS) was formed. The Global Initiative is a consortium of over 100 global thought leaders in the fields of Artificial Intelligence, law and ethics, philosophy, and policy from the realms of academia, science, government, and corporate sectors.

What you will learn:

  • Responsible artificial intelligence, law, compliance and ethics in artificial intelligence and practical applied ethics for use in the responsible design of artificial intelligence systems
  • Prioritizing human well-being in the age of AI and the business advantage of diversity and inclusion
  • Values by design in the algorithmic era and ethics in artificial intelligence research and development
  • What nudging is, why it is of special concern in AI applications and how algorithms can nudge behavior ethically
  • Data protection, data safety and ethical challenges in data protection and safety
