Artificial Intelligence (AI) Matters

This course provides an overview of the impact of AI technology in our daily lives, with a specific focus on its impact in the workplace.

There is special consideration of design issues for AI projects, examining responsible and ethical development of such technology, with a particular focus on implications for marginalised groups in society.

The course is divided into four blocks - from providing a background to introducing risks and strategies for mitigating these risks, then examples of how to use these strategies for real-world applications, before a final look at how technology such as how AI shapes the world of work.

By the end of this course, you will:

  • be able to formulate your own definition of AI
  • have described the major historical, social, political and economic issues in AI
  • have critically evaluated primary source information on these issues
  • be able to formulate your own responses to these issues, driven by fact-based critical research
  • be able to identify key features of risks in AI projects
  • be able to use these key features to flag risks in a project involving a variety of types of data.
