Our selection of videos on this month's theme: Future of AI Ethics


Artificial Intelligence and the African Philosophy of Ubuntu (AI Ethics: Global Perspectives)
In this module, Dorine explores the implications of Ubuntu philosophy on AI ethics. She begins with an overview of Ubuntu, explaining its central idea of “I am because we are”. Dorine then looks at the COMEST principles, which informed the 2021 UNESCO Recommendation on the Ethics of AI, drawing comparisons between the Western or Global North’s approach to principles with that of the Ubuntu philosophy. Through this exercise, she makes the case for a more inclusive approach to AI ethics and raises key questions to guide future discourse in this space.

Africa, Artificial Intelligence, & Ethics
Artificial intelligence is impacting and will impact Africa as profoundly as any continent on Earth. While some African nations struggle with limited access to the Internet, others are leaping into the digital economy with Smart Cities. Access for all, digital literacy, and capacity-building remain as challenges. Meanwhile, leading tech companies offer African nations digital infrastructure in return for ransoming off their data. Concern has also been voiced that African employment could be devastated over the long-term by the automation of jobs. How through AI and ethics can prospects for all of Africa be improved?

Prototyping AI ethics futures: Ethics in practice
Discussions about commercial AI and data ethics unavoidably run into the challenge of aligning ethical principles with the dictates of the market. Some have even questioned whether such an alignment is possible at all.

What are pivotal moments in the development of a technology where ethically relevant choices can lead to different outcomes?
