As AI starts integrating into all aspects of our daily lives, the questions that surround its ethical use are increasingly becoming more difficult to answer. Debates in both the public and private sectors are heated and made even harder as AI rapidly advances. The speakers address some of the most pressing questions surrounding AI ethics.
Course Description: The next wave of technological innovation and globalization will affect our countries, our societies, and ourselves. In the next economy, we will see a fusion of technologies and research that is blurring the lines between the physical, digital, and biological spheres.
We will see extraordinary technology advances that are commensurate with those of the first, second, and third industrial revolutions. These earlier industrial revolutions introduced the use of steam power to mechanize production, development of groundbreaking inventions in transportation, telecommunications, and manufacturing, as well as more recently, the introduction of the digital era.
As the next revolution is transforming humanity, MED/CEE 214: Frontier Technology explores the development and application of key emerging technologies in society: AI/ML; Smart Cities and Urban Mobility; Advanced Life Sciences; Telecommunications with 5G; and Data Privacy, Ethics, and Policy.
