Responsible Innovation in the Age of Artificial Intelligence
This course focuses on how traditional philosophical models like utilitarianism, virtue ethics and other key modalities of applied ethics have evolved to embrace specifics of algorithmic tracking and intelligence augmentation of Artificial Intelligence (AI). This course shows that by implementing these new models, businesses can learn how to holistically incorporate AI into their innovation process to sustain profits while honoring their purpose. This course also features recommendations on who within an organization should be tasked with exploring AI Ethics to implement these ideas.
