O kursie

The second edition of the course 

Meaning of "artificial intelligence" is not clear. This does not change the fact that we encounter more and more devices in our social world that are equipped with abilities that can be described as intelligence. As a result, the ethical issues raised by the development of technology are already relevant today. In this course, which provides an introduction to artificial intelligence and ethics, we will present selected issues that are currently the subject of numerous discussions. There will also be no shortage of reflections on the questions we are most likely to ask in the not too distant future.
