Guiding Light: Responsible, Ethical and Sustainable Ai For Social Causes
AI presents three major areas of ethical concern for society: privacy and surveillance, bias and discrimination, and perhaps the deepest, most difficult philosophical question of our times, the role of human judgment. The key to overcoming these concerns and understanding the benefits and improvements AI could bring to our society is a democraziced and decentralized discourse about the ethical implications it will have on us as human beings. It will be crucial how we are able to educate and empower individuals and communities to take part in the conversation on eye level with each other to use AI for the greater good. This talk will focus on ways into a responsible, ethical, and sustainable technological future with AI on the example of the international organization "Guiding Light - Center for Ethics and Sustainable Technologies". Together with a diverse and inclusive community of technologists, entrepreneurs, NGOs, charity organizations, and artists, Guiding Light initiates ethical and sustainable technology projects that benefit the wider public, tackle social problems, and address structural and transitional challenges in various areas of our lives. Its mission focuses on education, collaboration, measuring social impact, and debating and setting ethical standards for emerging technologies.
