Robots, Neural links, and Alexa: Why the ethics of artificial intelligence matter

Artificial intelligence is no longer a character in popular film and TV.It is increasingly embedded in our homes, workplaces and public places.We sometimes tend to think about educating students for this new world of sophisticated digital technologies by teaching them coding. This is undoubtably useful, prompting clear thinking and logic, as well as an understanding of how these technologies are built.But coding is only the beginning in being ‘AI ready’.The ethics of AI are conversations about how AI tools are designed, deployed and governed. They require us not to anthropomorphise AI but to be prepared to think critically and creatively about the values that should determine the uses of these technologies in society.
