Success in creating AI would be the biggest event in human history. Unfortunately, it might also be the last, unless we learn how to avoid the risks.
The AI deployment is moving at a warp speed on the back of giant technological strides and growing investment in the sector. “As AI systems become increasingly more capable, it becomes critical to measure and understand the ways in which they can perpetuate harm,” said Helen Ngo, an AI Index-affiliated researcher and co-author of Stanford University’s AI index report 2022.
With artificial intelligence becoming pervasive across all walks of life, it is critical to understand and create awareness about this technology’s ethical challenges and potential risks. To that end, top institutions have started courses on AI ethics. We list the best below:

The course focuses on how traditional philosophical models like utilitarianism, virtue ethics and other key modalities of applied ethics have evolved to embrace algorithmic tracking and intelligence augmentation of AI. The introductory course teaches how to incorporate AI into the innovation process of businesses holistically. The lesson plan also has recommendations on who should implement these ideas within the organisation.
