Teaching AI Ethics : The Series

Jun 26, 2023

Overall I thought this was a pretty good set of resources, though I would be inclined to call it 'Topics in AI Ethics', since despite wrapping things up pretty well in the final section on Power, the series really is a grab-bag of the most-often discussed issues in the field. And it's more of a curriculum than a course. Each of the nine parts provides an overview of the topic, links to some resources, and suggets some learning activities. What it doesn't do, to my mind, is to get deep into what we mean by ethics, and how our ethical presumptions shape what we think is important and what we accept as outcomes of the use of AI. Even an introductory course needs to talk about this. But if this doesn't bother, this is a good resource to use to introduce people to AI ethics.
