Ethics in AI Workshop - AI, Work and Democracy

The Institute for Ethics in AI and the Oxford Martin School are pleased to announce an exclusive afternoon event featuring in-depth panel sessions and a keynote address by distinguished economist Professor Daron Acemoğlu, who will be the Sanjaya Lall Visiting Professor during his stay in Oxford.

Keynote Title: Redesigning AI

Abstract: This talk will argue that the current path of AI is inimical to human flourishing. Nevertheless, different institutional arrangements, ethical underpinnings, and technological vision can lead to better AI. This better AI path will need to overcome the industry’s excessive focus on automation, the centralised control of information, challenges in the context of human-AI misalignment, and the disappearing diversity of information among human actors.
