With the rapid development of technology, the development of artificial intelligence is constantly a hot topic in the academic, media and cultural worlds. Time and again you hear in the news about the use of AI robots in different fields. Scientific and technological discoveries themselves are morally neutral, but the use people make of them is not. Every choice and every policy of mankind inadvertently affects the fate of mankind's own future. In this talk, Professors Leonard, Weatheral and Caetano will take the audience through an exploration of how to establish ethical standards for the use of technology in its development and use.
