After reviewing the Study Materials for this module, consider the following questions:
What do you see as the most important ethical issue raised by a specific application of artificial intelligence (e.g., self-driving vehicles, social bots, autonomous weapons)? Who could potentially benefit from this application of AI? Who might be harmed?
Why would it be important for policies to be put in place in order to mitigate harm? How could you apply categorical and consequentialist moral reasoning to the ethical questions the application raises? Do you see AI impacting your personal or professional life?
