Leading Ethically in the Age of AI and Big Data

A grant from Lilly Endowment Inc. will allow Purdue to become a national leader in the ethics of artificial intelligence (AI) and Big Data. By organizing a series of four events featuring leading experts on ethics of AI and Big Data, Purdue’s College of Liberal Arts will develop a blueprint for undergraduate professional ethics curricula that will address the many ethical challenges presented by fast-evolving digital technologies. AI and Big Data belong among the greatest opportunities for human progress of our times – thanks to this project, Purdue will create a flourishing community of faculty and industry leaders who will educate future business leaders on how to seize the potential of the emerging technologies in an ethical and accountable way. 

More details about the project can be found on this page.

Lilly Endowment also supports our sister grant at Indiana University "Ethics, Values, and Technology: Developing Character for a Digital World," the goal of which is to develop integrated initiatives to better equip students and faculty to confront and address ethical challenges presented by our digital world.
