    Ethics and morality of AI
    24 June
    Public discussion Created by Tony Cairns

    Will we examine the  ethic and morality of AI algorithms in policy as well as the functions?

    You're so right @Laura.Butler2 and Clive! I think it's timely to have well-rounded discussions about this space with our kids. Who makes the decisions? Who will they benefit? How do we know if the decisions are moral, ethical, just and fair?  

    As we face an increasing amount of global issues/wicked problems, then the effective use of AI may well help the human condition...just like this Microsoft AI advertisement I found myself being drawn to...

    This could become part of a localised electric garden project or a project using Micro:Bit moisture sensors Laura for your juniors - tracking the growth of plants etc. smiley https://www.electricgarden.nz/

    Long term, interesting to be aware of the potential implications of Artificial Intelligence for education and industry (CORE Education's Ten Trends, p57). What do you think, is this something we can take to the kids

        I see this as part of digital citizenship (the user side of digital) too, but I struggle with my junior class to approach it correctly.

        A conversation we should be having with students, but also in our own professional bodies (eg. what if a student doesn't want Google to have a profile of them as a learner?) etc.

        If anyone has any resources (for students or professionals) would love to share them as definitely other curriculum areas this could fit into.

          This is always an interesting space to think about and debate!

          I found this infographic linked to this report. Perhaps you could run an activity where students are given the myths and have to act like mythbusters to research and debate how mythical or factual they think they are...?
