    The Technical Limits of AI Ethics

    The Technical Limits of AI Ethics

    In recent years, the global discussion on "AI ethics" has succeeded in mainstreaming key principles to limit the risks that would otherwise arise from the unrestricted and unconsidered use of artificial intelligence, particularly with regards to privacy, safety, and equality. But it may have overlooked a much more fundamental and uncomfortable question: What are the limits of "AI ethics"? This panel discussion, hosted by Senior Fellow Arthur Holland Michel, looks at this question and much more.

One of Best Current Event Podcasts

Strikes the perfect balance between academically rigorous, solid analyis and yet accessible, engaging and entertaining. Excellen choice of important topics that don't get much coverage. Devin Stewart is also an excellent inverviewer - brings out the most important info and ties it together well.

Guests are great, you need a new interviewer

The experts interviewed are so interesting. Alex is not a talented interviewer. If he’s selecting the experts he’s doing a wonderful job, but he’s not great at conducting interviews and brings down the quality of the conversation.

“...Marginalized...” “Not a Participant...”

RE: mention of a Japanese man who took photos of the 1919 riots in Chicago. He’s still being marginalized because his name is not even mentioned, except as a “Japanese man.”

One star for the irony of talking about him as being marginalized at the time, while still being marginalized today in this podcast.

His name should be in the notes, as well as being mentioned in the podcast.
