Teaching AI Ethics: Observations and Challenges


  • Marija Slavkovik University of Bergen


This report summarises the experience in teaching Artificial Intelligence (AI) Ethics as an elective masters level course at the University of Bergen. The goal of the summary is twofold: 1) to draw lessons for teaching this in-high demand very new discipline; 2) to serve as a basis in developing a bachelor level AI Ethics course for students of artificial intelligence. AI Ethics as a topic is particularly challenging to teach as the discipline itself is very new and no textbooks have been established. The added challenge is introducing methodologies and skills from humanity- and social sciences to students of computational and information sciences.
