As such, ethics have surfaced widely in discussions on how to mitigate negative effects regarding AI. Critical interventions have however shown that there is a risk that ethics is used as a concept to merely wash off more fundamental questions regarding distributive justice. These critical interventions can however easily turn into a one-sided form of ethics bashing, which risks diminish the potential of reconsidering the role that AI may play in creating a more just society. For this reason it will be suggested that a more nuanced idea of both ethics and law can be explored via posthumanist critical theory.<span> </span></span></p> <p><span lang="EN-US"><strong>Jannice Käll </strong>is L.LD. in Legal Theory and Senior Lecturer in Sociology of Law at Lund University.

Murphy is a Radcliffe Alumnae Professor at Harvard Radcliffe Institute and a professor of statistics and computer science at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. She leads the Statistical Reinforcement Learning Lab, working on the development of data analytic algorithms and methods for informing sequential decision making in health. In particular for (1) constructing individualized sequences of treatments (a.k.a., adaptive interventions) for use in informing clinical decision making and (2) constructing real time individualized sequences of treatments (a.k.a., Just-in-Time Adaptive Interventions) delivered by mobile devices. For her work on trial designs and analytics, Dr. Murphy was awarded a McArthur Fellowship in 2013, in 2014 she was elected a member of the National Academy of Medicine and in 2016 she was elected a member of the National Academy of Sciences of the US National Academies.'s-demand-for-electricity.aspx's-demand-for-electricity.aspxCan wind energy meet the industry's demand for electricity?<p>Zoom</p><p>​NOTE!
