Ethics Training

Code of Ethics. The National Press Photographers Association, a professional society that promotes the highest standards in visual journalism, acknowledges concern for every person’s need both to be fully informed about public events and to be recognized as part of the world in which we live.

The Ethics of AI is a free online course created by the University of Helsinki. The course is for anyone who is interested in the ethical aspects of AI – we want to encourage people to learn what AI ethics means, what can and can’t be done to develop AI in an ethically sustainable way, and how to start thinking about AI from an ethical point of view.

The Photography Ethics Center are dedicated to promoting ethical literacy across the photography industry. We do this by offering a wide range of educational opportunities in photography ethics, including workshops, events, online courses, and free multimedia content.

AI + Ethics Curriculum for Middle School

How do we raise conscientious consumers and designers of AI?

Children today live in the age of artificial intelligence. On average, US children tend to receive their first smartphone at age 10, and by age 12 over half of all children have their own social media account. Additionally, it’s estimated that by 2022, there will be 58 million new jobs in the area of artificial intelligence. Thus, it’s important that the youth of today are both conscientious consumers and designers of AI.

This project seeks to develop an open source curriculum for middle school students on the topic of artificial intelligence. Through a series of lessons and activities, students learn technical concepts—such as how to train a simple classifier—and the ethical implications those technical concepts entail, such as algorithmic bias.
