Lecture on November 12th, 2020
Joanna J. Bryson (Hertie School of Governance, Berlin)
About the lecture
There are many movements concerning AI4Good, but what is good? Can and should we restrict the application of AI to only "good" domains? Or do concerns about regulating AI actually stretch more broadly to all digital technology? This talk explores ethical systems and the way technology and especially digital technology impacts the ethical systems of humans. We will look in particular about the roles of institutions such as governments and corporations in helping us structure and navigate individual well being.
