Artificial Intelligence

The course relates to ethical, social and legal implications of AI. It challenges the concept of AI by examining its occurrence in domestic, including EU, and international frameworks. Specific research areas cover AI-related concepts, applications across industries and states; environmental consequences of AI; ethics of AI – how far should we trust technology; discriminatory algorithms; data protection law; cybersecurity; AI on trial; weaponising AI; needs for international, EU and domestic regulations. The course encourages students to conduct an independent analysis of voluntary reading material and critically evaluate discussed matters, to research additional data and to clarify arguments and possible answers to the problems posed by machine learning tools.
