Artificial intelligence: ethical and policy questions 


AI ethics is much debated inside and outside academia, and often attracts exotic ideas and fears about superintelligence. This talk moves away from this polarization and science fiction fantasies and instead focuses on concrete ethical issues raised by AI and related data science. In the talk there is a special emphasis on issues concerning responsibility and knowledge. The talk also gives an overview of some challenges for AI policy in the light of these problems.
