Kavli Graduate Seminar in Philosophy: The Moral and Political Philosophy of AI

decorative image with the name of the course

This seminar seeks to examine key moral and political issues raised by the development and deployment of artificial intelligence. These include the challenge of aligning AI with human preferences, values, and norms; the problem of algorithmic power and the permissibility of collecting and analyzing people’s data to deliver interventions that shape their behavior; whether creating and distributing deepfakes is inherently wrong; the changing nature of employment and the desirability of a post-work world; and the conditions under which AI systems would themselves have well-being or qualify as moral patients.

See the course listing in the philosophy department. Offered Spring 2024.
