Ethical Considerations in AI


Our society changes rapidly when digitalization and AI transform the services we use, the products we develop and the way we work. As we move into the future, AI can be used for good purposes. But to ensure that technology works in favour of mankind, broader societal issues have to be considered, such as the automation on the labor market, social manipulation via Internet platforms and long-term consequences of artificial general intelligence.

In this course, you will learn how to think systematically about the ethics of new technologies. The course consists of a learning build-up session and two half-day workshops with online lectures in between. By the end of the course you will have developed a draft ethical policy related to your work.


This course is open to employees in both public and private sector organizations. The coures will be taught in English, but on-line material will have Swedish subtitles.
