Difficulty: ★☆☆

Engagement:    ★★☆

Target Audience: Any

Teacher: Sujay Sundar

With a world being completely revolutionized through the use of Artificial Intelligence, there have been many concerns of AI being used unnecessarily or unethically. There have also been many conspiracy theories related to how AI might evolve to become human-like and adopt the same negative qualities humans have and many doubts have risen through critical thinking. Will there be a robot takeover? Will AI leverage data against us? Will privacy still be a priority? Or will biased algorithms still be used in hospitals or banks? This workshop will be an interactive session to completely let out what you are thinking about the future of AI and how it might align/not align with your moral principles. No technical knowledge or AI experience is required as this will be a round-table discussion, rather than a lesson or lecture.
