The Lilly Endowment Inc. has awarded Indiana University a major grant aimed at exploring the ethical issues surrounding new digital technologies such as artifical intelligence, social media, autonomous vehicles, and genomics. Over the course of the next year, our team (along with analogous team at a partner project at Purdue) will be hosting a series of talks, workshops, and public discussions of these issues. I am very pleased to have been appointed the faculty director of the IU grant.
