A Collaboration between the Digital Ethics Center and the Schmidt Program on Artificial Intelligence and Emerging Technologies at the Yale Jackson School of Global Affairs, this one-semester workshop, led by Professor Luciano Floridi, Founding Director of the Digital Ethics Center and Professor of Practice in Cognitive Science, introduces key topics in the field of digital ethics, such as the nature and ethics of AI, digital sovereignty, and the relationship between environmental and digital issues, among others.
The goal is to understand the epochal transformations affecting human self-understanding, the shaping of information societies, the conceptualization of reality, and the new forms of interactions among individuals and between humanity and the world, from an ethical, normative, social, and political perspective. This workshop will enable participants to develop a deeper and more critical understanding of the digital revolution and its ethical impact and implications.
Join us for the inaugural information session on Monday, September 25, which will take place in the 46 Hillhouse Seminar Room. Light dinner and refreshments provided.
