The Center for Responsible AI at New York University has published a free online course titled “AI Ethics: Global Perspectives.”
The course consists of a series of videos produced by many different people in countries around the world. The instructors include computer science and engineering professors as well as researchers in various fields, including government, health care, and the humanities. These are the lectures I intend to watch:
- Danya Glabau, a medical anthropologist, discusses AI for Whom?
- Maui Hudson, a New Zealand professor who focuses on applications of Māori indigenous knowledge, discusses Indigenous Data Sovereignty.
- Ken Ito, a composer and professor of music, brain cognitive information philosophy (!) and ethics at the University of Tokyo, discusses Algorithmic Bias and Relativity in AI.
- Jerry John Kponyo, an engineering professor in Ghana, discusses Applications of AI in Transport and Safety.
- Shannon Vallor, a philosophy professor, discusses Do Carebots Care? The Ethics of Social Robots in Care Settings.
Lectures still to come:
- Renee Cummings, a U.S. criminologist and consultant, will discuss “Bias in Data and AI: Myth, Mistrust, and Myopia.”
- Susan Scott-Parker will discuss “AI Powered Disability Discrimination: How Do You Lip Read a Robot Recruiter?”
