What we're about

NOTE: These sessions used to be run on the platform here by the Montreal AI Ethics Institute (MAIEI) but MAIEI no longer uses this platform and new events (2020 onwards) are not an official part of the programming from MAIEI. Workshops run by MAIEI are available here instead - https://montrealethics.ai/meetup
The current maintainer of the group is Mati Roy. 

About AI Ethics 

Topics up for discussion under 'AI Ethics' include (but are not limited to):
• ensuring the benefits of AI are democratically available
• identifying and working on problems of social importance
• preventing weaponization and/or malicious use of AI
• quantification and correction of bias in datasets
• data ethics and privacy
• identifying the roles of researchers, policy makers, end-users, and other groups

About AI Safety 
Risks from artificial intelligence is at the top of 80,000 Hours' list of global issues. To learn more about this, we recommend this article and its references: https://goo.gl/fYgGrM.
The paper "Concrete Problems in AI Safety" is a good place to start learning about what needs to be researched in the field: https://goo.gl/6UgQzT.
Here are papers we're considering discussing with this Meetup group: https://goo.gl/ULYVXx.
