About: The Ethics of Artificial Intelligence delves into the moral and societal implications of AI technologies. It explores the ethical challenges surrounding AI's decision-making, bias, privacy, and potential impacts on human rights and social equality. As AI becomes increasingly integrated into our lives, understanding and addressing its ethical dimensions are crucial. Ethical AI development involves ensuring fairness, transparency, and accountability in algorithms and systems. By promoting responsible practices, AI can be harnessed to benefit humanity while safeguarding against unintended harm. The main goal of the 2ICEAI is to foster a comprehensive and informed exploration of the ethical dimensions and implications of AI technologies by bring together experts, researchers, practitioners, and policymakers from diverse fields to engage in dialogue, share insights, and exchange ideas on the ethical challenges posed by AI.
