Knowledge, Learning, Community

This article points to a guide called "A pathway towards responsible, ethical AI" (16 page PDF) which provides the setting about asking some basic questions about the implementation of AI. the questions include considerations of whether it fits institutional objectives, whether it will work, whether it fits the institutions culture and purpose, and whether the institution and supply chain are ready. In so doing it raises questions involving fitness of purpose, ethical issues, training and trust. My main criticism is that it lumps all applications of AI under a single heading. Obviously, different considerations apply when deciding whether to use automated grading, automated captions in videoconferencing as compared to using student data to automatically recommend learning materials.
