[.NET@Noon] The Ethics of AI
September 7 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT
**Topic:** The Ethics of AI – With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility
Artificial intelligence is a powerful technology that is revolutionizing our lives, our work, and our world. However, with great power comes great responsibility. Unfortunately, most of us are not yet prepared to use our new AI superpowers ethically.
In this session, we will explore the ethical implications of AI in a three-part journey through AI technologies of today, tomorrow, and the future. Along the way, we’ll discuss potential problems and solutions to these new AI-created ethical dilemmas.
We’ll begin with the ethical issues we face with today’s AI, such as bias, lack of transparency, and surveillance capitalism. Next, we’ll discuss the challenges of the next decade, including AI’s impact on our labor economy, synthetic media, and human autonomy. Finally, we’ll explore possibilities for the next century of AI, including artificial super intelligence, the value alignment problem, and the future of humanity.
If you’re a software developer, IT professional, or just curious about AI, you won’t want to miss this thought-provoking exploration of the ethics of AI!
