Changwon University's Institute of Social Sciences analyzes social problems in the country and communities by strengthening research capabilities in the humanities and social fields, as well as researching and developing policies related to them. The purpose of the project is to contribute to the development of social science theory and the development of communities. Academic events in a variety of fields will be held every month. Over the months of May and June, a total of four academic events will be held. One of these events will address the theme of "Ethical Problems of Artificial Intelligence in the Professional Life of the AI Era."
On Thursday, May 13, Professor Byun Soon-yong of the Department of Ethics Education at Seoul National University of Education gave a lecture at NH Humanities Hall for three hours from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Artificial intelligence is drawing attention as an area of interest through AlphaGo in 2016 as AlphaGo and Lee Se-dol's articles continued. Education and the promotion of artificial intelligence is being conducted, but not much has been done about the problems that artificial intelligence can cause.
An AI is an artifical machine intelligence that is not an independent autonomous entity that can be held morally or legally responsible. However, since it is a product of human design and production, artificial intelligence can be argued to have identity or autonomy behind an action. Artificial intelligence must be apporached ethically because AI can be perceived as having autonomy.
To easily define artificial intelligence, it is a technology that mimics human thinking or learning abilities through computer programs. Artificial Intelligence is also called AI. Artificial intelligence imitates a person's neural network to analyze and learn big data on its own. Artificial intelligence continues to develop and is becoming practical to use in almost every profession and workplace today. As a result, people have to compete for jobs with artificial intelligence, and have to prepare for the upcoming artificial intelligence era.
Professor Byun Soon-yong lectured on the fact that domestic AI education is focused only on technical education. In the United States, Finland and Australia, AI is a topic covered in various humanities such as in philosophy, as well as the societal implications of AI and human interaction. On the other hand, curriculums in Korea and China are organized around coding programs and various new technology experiences, and that they focus only on technical education in education for teachers as well as in schools. In response, Professor Byun Soon-yong stressed the need to introduce AI education to all people, not just AI experts or developers, citing AI ethics education conducted by MIT Media Lab and Harvard University's inherent ethics programs.
It is important to consider the social characteristics of the country when setting up a curriculum dealing with future AI ethical standards. Professor Byun Soon-yong said, "If global guidelines or standards are introduced, they will be accepted as general or abstract content". Professor Byun Soon-yong then proposed to develop an AI ethics education system that reflects the three basic principles and teenage requirements of AI ethics standards announced in Korea.
Lectures will be held on various topics, including welfare and human rights violations, on June 3, 10 and 25, respectively. In particular, there are many lectures on the theme of Changwon City in the local region, which is noteworthy in that it provides a place of thought to analyze social problems surrounding the local community and explore related development directions. Why not participate in the upcoming academic events of the Institute of Social Sciences and open the stage for thought?
