Session I: Ethical Opportunities and Challenges of AI

Lecture

Christoph Lütge

Full Professor of Business Ethics of the Technical University of Munich

Class Introduction

A recent survey in Germany has found that people would like to increasingly see AI deployed in a variety of application fields. While the opportunities and potentials of AI are undeniable, its ethical obstacles are still challenging and need to be considered in close relation to the developmental context, so as to limit barriers for the technology’s use. A major duty for ethics in AI therefore remains the development of tangible and applicable recommendations which can be directly used and integrated in AI systems.

Lecture

TIAN Feng

Dean of SenseTime Intelligent Industry Research Institute

Class Introduction

There is no doubt that Artificial Intelligence (AI) have been empowering various industries, and it is changing people’s lives. On the one hand, the paradigm is upgrading from “Compute” to “Cognition” in AI Era. On the other hand, AI Infrastructure is becoming the accelerators of scientific and technological innovation. As AI continues to rapidly evolve, it begs the new question of ethics without a clear concept. To solve this problem, SenseTime proposed a Development-Oriented Principle of Ethics In AI, including three fundamental principles: Sustainability, Human-centric and Controllable technology. In addition, Mr. TIAN Feng introduces cases of ALS intelligent nursing system,  AI-driven remote consultation services and digital human share services for public services to illustrate how AI provides accessible and affordable services for vulnerable groups.
