From driverless cars, to how we treat ‘Alexa’, Amazon’s digital assistant, to the potential threats of automated weapons systems, AI consumer applications generate many thorny political and ethical debates, and real world harms. These debates are not just about the technology, but also what we think, respectively, about driving, secretarial or administrative assistance, and warfare and geopolitical conflict. In other words studying AI and Ethics is also about confronting the social, political, and cultural contexts of AI's emergence in the world. This course will introduce ways to begin to understand these complex interactions and how they shape our world.
