This workshop on AI Ethics is being hosted by the Montreal AI Ethics Institute (MAIEI) in partnership with Goethe-Institut to make the ideas of the societal impacts of AI more accessible with the goal of equipping and empowering us all to reshape this powerful technology so that we can achieve a more fair, just, and well-functioning society.

The workshop will be centred on the films screened by Goethe-Institut during the week prior to the workshop along with some other materials provided by MAIEI as suggested readings and viewings. Drawing from those as inspiration, this will be a collaborative workshop bringing together people from all walks of life to discuss the subjects of human-machine interaction, machine-mediated conversations, behavior shaping and nudging, future of work, and alternative futures in an AI-infused world.

The participants of this workshop will walk away with a more nuanced understanding of the impacts that this technology has on our lives and how we can engage our own communities, colleagues, and families in a more critically informed discussions to move towards a positive future.
