« back to classes page
Discuss the concepts of technology and innovation and frame some of the ethical dilemmas they present. Look at the role of technology in the COVID19 pandemic and examine its impact on society and its unintended consequences. The concepts of Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning, and their presence in our lives, will be introduced in plain language, as well as their challenges, limitations, and the ethical concerns they bring about. The basic principles, classification, and state-of-the-art of the technology behind Autonomous Vehicles (self-driving cars), Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (drones), and Assistive Technology (for people with physical or mental disabilities and the elderly) will be examined, with examples and discussion of legal and ethical considerations of each one. Along the class lectures, we will engage in interactive discussions about the impact and potential of these technologies.
