For prospective students

Faculty lecture: Bias, trust and doing good - scientific explorations of topics in AI ethics

Join us online for a lecture on the ethics of artificial intelligence with Joanna Bryson, Professor of Ethics and Technology.

On Tuesday, 13 April, from 5:00 to 6:00 pm, Professor of Ethics and Technology Joanna Bryson will present recent research on the #tags often associated with the ethics of artificial intelligence and regulation.

In this talk, Joanna Bryson will cover the concept of public goods, show how these relate to sustainability, and then provide a quick review of three recent results concerning:

  • What trust is, where it comes from, what it's for, and how AI might alter it;

  • Where bias in language comes from, what it's for, and whether AI might and should be used to alter it;

  • Where polarisation comes from, what it was for historically, and how we should deal with it in the present day.

Please register to attend the lecture.


This lecture is part of our data science event series. The first cohort of the Master of Data Science for Public Policy will begin the programme in fall 2021.
