2016-2017 Ethics Project
Ethics components will be incorporated in classes related to Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. An ethics component will also be incorporated in the training students receive while performing undergraduate and graduate research in these areas. There will be two perspectives of ethics that will be considered. i) As the scientific and engineering communities build artificial intelligence that can think and act like humans, what is the role of ethics in research and practice? Ii) As huge amounts of data are being collected, primarily from the Internet and mobile technology related activities, what role ethics should play as information is being mined about individuals and then used for various purposes by corporations and governmental entities.
