QUO VADIS, AI ETHICS?

The effect of artificial intelligence (AI) on society and our lives is already profound, and is likely to increase further. This can be for better or worse, and therefore it is of vital importance that an ethics perspective permeates all development, deployment and use of AI systems. How can this best be achieved? This is a question for society-at-large as well as for a tech-heavy university like Chalmers, and the purpose of this workshop is to address it and shed light on it.
