IEEE presents Artificial Intelligence and Ethics in Design training. A not-for-profit organization, IEEE is the world's largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity. IEEE Continuing and Professional Education courses are designed to help engineers stay up-to-date on the latest technologies. Produced and vetted by leading experts, you can count on IEEE Continuing Education courses to equip you with the information you need to stay current in your field.
Artificial Intelligence and Ethics in Design Course Program
The ethics of designing artificial intelligence (AI) systems is constantly in the news as professionals seek to leverage the power of AI while minimizing the risk. This practical course series is designed to take the theory of ethics, and apply it practically to the design and business of artificial intelligence systems.
IEEE Artificial Intelligence and Ethics in Design course program will demonstrate how aligning technology with ethical values can help advance innovation in AI and AS. Join experts across the fields of engineering, law, science, economics, ethics, philosophy, politics, and health in part one of this exciting program, coming in 2018 from IEEE.
In this 5-course program, you'll explore:
- Responsible Innovation in the Age of AI
- The Economic Advantage of Ethical Design for Business
- Values by Design in the Algorithmic Era
- The Nature of Nudging
- Ensuring Data Protection and Data Safety
These courses are designed for global professionals working in engineering, IT, computer science, big data, artificial intelligence, and related fields across all industries who require up-to-date information on the latest technologies, as well as their managers.
Upon successful completion of these courses, your engineers will receive valuable CEUs/PDHs from IEEE that can be used to maintain engineering licenses.
Course program will be available April, 2018. Pre-order for your company now.

Course Program Details
Part one of the Artificial Intelligence and Ethics in Design online course program from IEEE includes the following courses:
Responsible Innovation in the Age of AI
This umbrella introduction focuses on how traditional philosophical models (e.g. utilitarianism, virtue ethics, and other key modalities of applied ethics) have evolved to embrace specifics of algorithmic tracking and intelligence augmentation of AI. You'll also learn how businesses can holistically incorporate AI into their innovation process to sustain profits while honoring their purpose.
The Economic Advantage of Ethical Design for Business
AS/AI tech can not be built in isolation, and to get a full sense of ethical and policy impacts of this technology, this course will help you understand the larger context of its implementation in order to increase societal well being and build your business.
Values by Design in the Algorithmic Era
In this course, we’ll explore methods for identifying, analyzing, and operationalizing moral, societal, and legal values of AI projects, in explicit and verifiable ways to enable inspection and stakeholder participation.
The Nature of Nudging
Subject matter experts John Sullins and Laurence Devillers will discuss "nudging", the ability of systems or robots (embodied AI) to overtly influence human users with or without their direct consent, and how it can greatly improve users' lives for anything from diet to depression.
Ensuring Data Protection and Data Safety
The introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) legislation presents massive opportunities to increase ethical considerations in the creation of AI/AS and technology in general. In this course, you'll learn about these global implications, and areas where organizations can go beyond compliance and reframe innovation to provably align their products and services with end user values.
