Course Description

In today's rapidly advancing technological landscape, the use of artificial intelligence (AI) has become increasingly prevalent. However, with this increased use comes a host of ethical concerns that must be addressed. The Ethical Issues in AI and Professional Ethics course, offered by the University of Colorado Boulder, aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills necessary to navigate these complex ethical issues. Throughout the course, students will explore the ethical implications of using AI in various industries, such as healthcare, finance, and transportation. They will also examine the ethical responsibilities of professionals who work with AI, including data scientists, engineers, and policymakers. One of the key skills that students will develop in this course is a deep understanding of algorithms and how they are used in AI systems. They will learn about the potential biases and ethical implications of different algorithms and how to mitigate these issues. This course is designed for beginners, so no prior knowledge of AI or ethics is required. The course duration is 1-3 months, and
