Deep Dive: Machines and Morality


Artificial intelligence has rapidly and deeply permeated our lives; and for much of the public, these infiltrations were unexpected — some even remain unrecognized. As we develop machines driven by human-created algorithms, it is imperative for us to examine how our moral and ethical biases and assumptions inform our creations, which will in turn change the world. Can and should we approach a consensus on what ethics to instill in AI? (Why should we care who writes this code and what their values are?) What are potential harmful outcomes of unintentional inclusion of bias in algorithms? What happens when we don’t know what computers are thinking? This deep dive session will inspect the major ethical questions associated with artificial intelligence and its widespread use today.
