About the lecture
Lecture will be delivered in English with simultaneous translation into Russian
Philip Brey will present and discuss the main ethical challenges of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and how they could be dealt with.

AI is an extremely powerful technology that could bring many benefits to society. AI is currently transforming how businesses operate, how government operates, how healthcare, law enforcement and education work, and how people communicate and find information. In recent years, it has been recognised that AI could also have major ethical challenges that, if unanswered, could threaten both the individual and the state. These include challenges to privacy, fairness, liberty, and the quality of society and its democratic processes, amongst others.

In this talk, Brey will discuss how these challenges emerge, what their potential consequences are, and how they can be met by various actors, including developers of AI, users, policymakers, and others.
