We provide a variety of courses aimed at tackling topics and challenges across the gamut of Applied Ethics, with a particular focus on the intersection of Moral Philosophy and emerging technologies – such as those in the fields of robotics, AI, data science, neuroscience, engineering, and more. In these courses, we map out the ethical opportunities and quandaries presented by these technologies and discuss arguments and approaches to navigating ethical decision-making and responsibility in the contexts they give rise to.
Below are a few examples of the topics covered by the courses on offer:

  • Ethics of AI
  • Philosophy and Ethics of Technology
  • Neuroethics
  • Risk ethics
  • Engineering Ethics and Professional Responsibility
