Develop the tools and skills to practise ethical reasoning and manage the diverse impacts of AI on individuals and society – with content by Kate Vredenburgh and Thomas Ferretti, lead by Paola Romero.
As artificial intelligence (AI) adoption becomes more commonplace, so do questions of the ethics surrounding the design and implementation of it. In order to critically assess the implications of AI and manage its diverse impacts, it is essential to gain a comprehensive overview of key ethical questions raised by the effects of AI on the state, business, and society.
The Ethics of AI three-week online masterclass examines the ethical challenges and opportunities presented by AI technologies. Throughout this course, you’ll apply moral concepts – such as inequality, fairness, and transparency – to real-world situations to better understand and resolve ethical dilemmas. Gain insight into how AI technologies can be used in a variety of business contexts, including hiring and employee supervision, and learn what this might mean for issues such as discrimination and power imbalances in your organisation.
With a focus on developing a practical skill set for immediate application, benefit from LSE’s world-renowned teaching, faculty, and research as you engage in this topical, integral discussion. You’ll also have the opportunity to participate in live sessions with participants and facilitators, take part in practical activities investigating the ethical tensions inherent in AI, and join a global network of like-minded peers.
This is a 3 week online course. There are no prerequisites for this course. Deadline for registration: 1 August 2023.
