San Francisco State Rolls Out New 'Ethical Artificial Intelligence' Program

Wednesday, July 03, 2019

THE COLLEGE FIX -- “If a self-driving car gets into an accident, who’s to blame? The person behind the wheel? The manufacturer? Or the programmer who gave the car the ability to drive itself in the first place?”

That’s one of the questions San Francisco State University officials say they hope graduates of a new ethical artificial intelligence graduate certificate program might be able to answer.

“Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to transform our life and work, but it also raises some thorny ethical questions,” campus officials added in their news release on the program, launching this August.
