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

The schedule for the discussion will be as follows:

13:00 - 13:10 (5-10 mins): Brief introduction about the reading group
13:10 - 13:30 (15-20 mins): Initial list of topics proposed by organizers, refined by audience
13:30 - 14:00 (30 mins): Split into smaller discussion groups to develop concrete, feasible proposals
14:00 - 14:20 (20 mins): Brief presentation of each group's thoughts and proposals by a spokesperson

This is not a 'deep-learning exclusive' group; members of the community and anyone interested in these issues are warmly invited to participate.
