Want to learn how to identify and solve every day ethical issues in engineering, science and Artificial Intelligence (AI)? If yes, this is the course for you! Ethics plays an integral role when it comes to engineering and science practice and recently is impacted by AI and big data analysis. This course originally released in 2017 teaches traditional preventive engineering ethics but emphasizes aspirational ethics.
