Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Current technological developments in the field of robotics, automation, and artificial intelligence raise ethical questions. Consider for instance the use of robots in health care, the automation of cars, and the use of intelligent military drones, or the development of more intelligent artificial agents. This course gives an overview of issues and approaches in this field, shows how these issues relate to interesting problems in philosophy, and connects to relevant public debates.
Students will be introduced to the recent literature and actual discussions in the field and will be expected to critically engage with them. They will also be stimulated to make connections with challenging questions in other areas of philosophical inquiry and learn from what is happening in relevant interdisciplinary research projects.
