Research in Artificial Intelligence (AI) is developing rapidlyAs more and more AI technology becomes available, it increasingly transforms our everyday lives. AI helps us select what movies to watch, find our way home at night, and diagnose illnesses. More than that, AI systems are involved in taking business or legal decisions. This raises profound challenges for our modern society.

In this course, we shall examine the he history of AIimportant core concepts as well as philosophicaldebates surrounding contemporary AI research. We shall discuss what motivated researchers to build AIsystems in the first place, what different kinds of AI architectures there are, and what the philosophical foundations and challenges for AI are. We shall particularly focus on questions such as “What is Intelligence?”, “How are artificial intelligent systems different from biological ones?”, “Are AI systems better at making fair decisions than humans?”, “How can we gain insights into the operation of AI systems that are effectively black boxes to us?”, and “What happens if an AI becomes smarter than humans?”. (MA Electives) (BA P6.v)
