About the Course

This course begins with an overview of AI’s evolution, clarifying essential terms and distinctions. We delve into AI governance, examining global and local frameworks, policies, and the roles of various organizations.

Focusing on ethics, we will address the moral principles guiding AI, strategies for embedding fairness, accountability, and transparency, and analyze case studies of ethical challenges, including human labor costs and environmental concerns. The course also provides guidance on responsible AI use in educational settings, emphasizing ethical decision-making, privacy, consent, and data protection.
We tackle the issue of misinformation, exploring AI's role in generating and spreading false information, and teach strategies to identify and combat fake news and deepfakes. Additionally, the course examines the broader societal impacts of AI, including its effects on the economy, employment, and the digital divide.
By the end of this course, learners will understand AI's applications, governance, and ethical considerations, and be equipped to make informed, ethical decisions in their professional and personal lives. Become a well-informed digital citizen ready to navigate and shape the future of AI technology.
