The Ethics of Emerging Technology

By: Dr. Billy Barry
Registration: Open 
Course Dates: May 1 - June 5
Five Week Self-Paced Course
The class will be repeated throughout the year
Course limit of "100 Happy Students"

Emerging technologies are groundbreaking technologies in development, with the potential to notably impact life. Emerging technologies embody the potential to transform our perception and sense of reality, personhood, and identity in the world. We currently live in the Age of Artificial Intelligence, which is fast-paced and changing human culture and our natural environment in ways unprecedented in human history. As responsible citizens of the world, we face a challenge to understand how technology will affect the quality of life so we can make informed and rational decisions. 

Understanding and applying ethical decision making is critical if we are to construct a society that is life-affirming and honors the dignity and respect of life in this new historical age of artificial intelligence we live. Emerging technology is rarely, if ever, value-neutral and promotes specific values. This course will empower students through constructivist learning to accurately identify the ethical design and usage of emerging technologies and to assess the implications regarding the quality of life, both positive and negative, of introducing new technologies.
