As businesses increasingly utilize artificial intelligence to make important decisions for humans, there is growing concern about the compatibility of AI and human values. Researchers are now examining how to make AI learn ethical principles in addition to calculative and strategic intelligence.

We’ll explore conversational AI agents' behavior in ethical values; conditions under which it is unethical and conditions under which it is not unethical for AI to lie to human users; how the ethical status of conversational AI depends, in part, upon cultural norms; and implications for AI companies’ ethical duties on how to program AI.

This guest lecture is open to the public and is sponsored by the Center for the Study of Ethics in the Professions and the Coleman Foundation. Light refreshments will be provided from 3 p.m. and onward.
