As AI technologies continue to advance, questions about the ethics of AI become more pressing than ever. In this talk, Professor Liao outlines some of the key issues and concerns in the study of AI ethics, identify some of the core claims that have been made, and propose an ethical framework based on human rights that can help us guide these discussions.
