Inhoud
This course will make students familiar with fundamental issues in the philosophy of AI, and will introduce them to several current discussions in the field. Students will practice their argumentation and presentation skills, both in class discussions and in writing.
The course is split up in three parts. The first part is a quick overview of the fundamental issues and core notions in philosophy of AI. It addresses topics such as the Turing Test, the Chinese Room Argument, machine intelligence, machine consciousness, weak and strong AI, and the Symbol System Hypothesis. In order to establish a shared background for all students, the material of this part will be assessed with an entrance test already in week 3.
In the second part of the course, there will be an in-depth discussion of several current topics in the field, for example on ethics and responsibility in AI, decision making, or the relation between AI and data science. On each topic, there will be a lecture, and a seminar with class discussions and student presentations. Students prepare for those discussions by posting a thesis with one or more supporting arguments about the required reading. In the third part of the course, students will write a philosophical paper, and will provide feedback on their fellow students' draft papers. More information in Blackboard

This course is for Students Artificial Intelligence, History and Philosophy of Science, and RMA Philosophy. Students of other MA-programmes, please contact the Course Coordinator. 
The entrance requirements for Exchange Students will be checked by International Office and the Programme coordinator. Therefore, you do not have to contact the Programme coordinator yourself.
