PHIL 28S: Philosophical Issues in Artificial Intelligence

This course is an introduction to philosophical issues raised by the growing field of artificial intelligence. What does the rise of increasingly complex artificial intelligence models (OpenAI; ChatGPT, AlphaGo, text-to-image generators) tell us about the nature of mind, rationality, and human creativity? What are ethical issues raised by the increasingly sophisticated use of algorithms in our daily lives - whether it be spotting credit card fraud, targeted advertising, curating our social media content, or prison sentencing? How do notions such as 'moral agency', 'practical reason', and 'responsibility' pertain, if at all, to applications of artificial intelligence, e.g., automated cars and weapons? What does the future of human work look like in light of developments in artificial intelligence? No philosophical background is presupposed. The aim of this class will be to help students engage with the philosophical issues raised by emerging technologies. Individual and group assignments will enable students to develop their critical skills in both written and discussion¿based work.
