College of Liberal Arts College Initiatives
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.
As emerging technologies unfold making certain that those advances contribute in positive ways will fall to academic, business, community, and government leaders, who define its regulation and liability, and anticipate its consequences, intended and not. From our position at Purdue University, the College of Liberal Arts is well-positioned to contribute to the body of knowledge that empowers future generations to reimagine the world around them and be a force for good.
The strategic plan was developed in collaboration with a team of faculty and staff representing the College, reviewed by faculty and staff, and endorsed by the CLA Faculty Senate and the the CLA faculty as a whole.
