Ethics in AI - Why it matters

People in motion Ethics in AI

Philosophers made a major contribution to the development of medical ethics 40 years ago, and we are now at a tipping point where a similar ethical intervention is needed to cope with the questions raised by the rise of AI.

Every day brings more examples of the ethical challenges posed by AI, from face recognition to voter profiling, brain machine interfaces to weaponised drones, and the ongoing discourse about how AI will impact employment on a global scale. 

This is urgent and important work that we intend to promote internationally as well as embedding in our own research and teaching here at Oxford.
