The fifth session of the Winter 2024 Webinar Series organised by the Conceptual Engineering for Emerging Technologies (CEET) initiative will take place on 19 March at 10:00 am CET on Zoom.

The session will unfold in three distinct segments. Initially, participants will delve into key research papers on the philosophy and ethics of AI. Federica Russo (University of Utrecht) will kick off the discourse by presenting her recent proposal for an ethics-cum-epistemology of AI. Subsequently, Alex Campolo (University of Durham) and Katia Schwerzmann (Bochum University) will delve into their research on alignment within the ethics of machine learning. Transitioning from this foundation, the second part will feature a 20-minute semi-structured conversation with Emma Ruttkamp-Bloem (University of Pretoria). The discussion will revolve around AI governance, critically examining the extent to which philosophical insights, as discussed earlier, can effectively shape policy recommendations for responsible AI. In the concluding segment, the last 30 minutes will be dedicated to a comprehensive discussion involving the online audience. This open forum aims to foster a collective exploration of ideas and perspectives on the intricate interplay between philosophy, ethics, and the practical governance of AI.
