Friday 6 PM, ET

The purpose of this short course is to discuss the ethics of AI, using movies as examples. Starting from the sci-fi movie Metropolis, attempts have been made to depict a world dominated by technology, venturing into a future where intelligent robots roam the earth and underprivileged citizens suffer due to the high cost of living. The discussion will revolve around a few movies, each related to AI/Robotics but focused on a different theme. The course will end with a final class on the new wave of generative AI models like ChatGPT and the ethical issues they raise.
