It becomes abundantly clear that artificial intelligence (AI) has a significant impact on society. Many people are concerned about its ethical and political impact. Think about the rapid development of ChatGPT and scandals such as Cambridge Analytica. Based on his books AI Ethics (now available in Czech translation) and The Political Philosophy of AI, philosopher of technology and ERA Chair at the Czech Academy of Sciences Mark Coeckelbergh gives an overview of some of the key ethical and political issues raised by AI. Who is responsible when something goes wrong? How autonomous are we still when we are manipulated by means of AI? And what is the future of our democracies in the light of AI? And how anthropocentric can AI ethics afford to be?
The lecture will be followed by the book launch ceremony of Mark Coeckelbergh's book AI Ethics, published in Czech translation as Etika umělé inteligence by Filosofia Publishing House.
