Artificial Intelligence and Ethics in Design
The ethics of artificial intelligence is a hot topic, sparking much admiration, concern, conversation, and potential regulation as this technology evolves. To help move beyond both the fear and the uncritical admiration, the IEEE Global Initiative for Ethical Considerations in Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Systems (AI/AS) was formed. The Global Initiative is a consortium of over 100 global thought leaders in the fields of Artificial Intelligence, law and ethics, philosophy, and policy from the realms of academia, science, government, and corporate sectors.

Artificial Intelligence and Ethics in Design: Responsible Innovation
European regulations require that ethics specifications be met when designing artificial intelligence (AI) systems. Ignoring these regulations can result in hefty financial fines. In this program, learn what engineers need to know when designing artificial intelligence systems.

Ensuring Data Protection and Data Safety
The creation of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) legislation in the EU means that every European organization has to account for the safe and proper handling of citizen’s personal data or risk a fine of up to 4% on their gross annual revenue. This legislation has global implications as every major organization has data of EU citizens or that flows through EU servers. This legislation provides a massive opportunity to increase ethical considerations in the creation of AI/S and technology in general where organizations can go beyond compliance and reframe innovation to provably align their products and services with end user values.

From Growth to Great
In this course we will examine how the growth of Artificial Intelligence is aligned with responsible business practice, and will understand the need for, and principles of, Agile Governance. Next we will review how ethical considerations tie into the ongoing manufacture, implementation and policy regarding AI/AS and finally we'll discover how standards for Ethical AI/AS can enhance growth.

Human Emotion in Devices and Technology
The field of Affective Computing that encompasses the nature of how human’s emotions respond to devices and technology is a seminal issue to study in regards to the ethical implications of AI/AS.  Where users may not understand that robots/AI are infused with affective sensors or technology, they could be manipulated or tricked in ways unintended by well-meaning manufacturers or designers.  If we are to live with robots in our near future, we must become more emotionally intelligent before trying to imbue ethical instructions for our silicon companions. In this course we will review the concept of affective computing. We will then examine its most relevant ethical issues and how to deal with them.

Global Standards: A Driving Force for Commerce
Standards expand consumer choice. They grow markets, and they contribute significantly to interoperability. Standards fuel the pace of technical evolution, and standards contribute significantly by shrinking the world through the creation of global markets. This course discusses the fundamental nature of standards, the value of standards to industry and the role that industry plays in standards development. The various standards development organizations both national and international are also reviewed. Changing industry dynamics across technology, politics and economics all add complexity to the standards-development process.

How to Read a Standard
This course will help you to gain an understanding of what is a standard, why standards are important, and how to understand the contents of a standard.  You’ll learn who uses engineering standards and why. Descriptions of the different components of a standard and what is contained in each section are provided along with actual examples from IEEE Standards. The “language of standards” is also discussed to provide the reader with guidance on the nuances of using certain words over others in the context of a standard.

Interconnection Test and Verification in IEEE Std 1547-2018
This course begins by reviewing the interconnection testing and verification requirements included in the IEEE 1547 standard. Topics covered include the reference point of applicability, which is a critical decision that needs to be made before verification, as well as the types of conformance that have been done, and those two will determine the verification process.  Learners will also go through the process itself, and define each of the test methods that are discussed.  And finally learners will see a brief summary of IEEE 1547.1, which is currently being developed as a separate working group.
