Title: AI, law, and ethics: from ethics washing to ethics bashing, towards another form of ethics via posthumanist theory.
This seminar will address the role of ethics in the discussion surrounding legislative efforts regarding AI. 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.
