Course description and aims

The rapid evolution of AI improves the convenience of our lives, but it also has social impacts. In this lecture, we teach the ethics of AI in the information society, the information law, and the technologies to realize responsible AI to cultivate a broad perspective beyond the boundaries of the humanities and sciences. This lecture deals with social issues of AI, which were not covered in the course of fundamentals of progressive artificial intelligence.

Student learning outcomes

The goals are to think independently about ethical, legal, and social issues in today's information society and understand the techniques of explainable AI and fairness.


AI ethics, Governance, Privacy, Security, Explainable AI, Fairness, Generative AI

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

ZOOM is used to allow students to take courses at Ookayama or Suzukakedai campuses.
