Research Briefs

Outreach is an incredibly important component of the IEAI mission. Research on AI ethics needs to translate to practice. Otherwise, we cannot maximize the impact of our work. Publications and outreach relate to the results of our research, therefore, make up a core task of our work.

To this end, the IEAI itself produces a bi-monthly Research Brief Series. The aim of these publications is to highlight important topics in AI ethics and explore the ethical considerations related to them. These succinct reviews are aimed at a broad audience with the goal of informing the public on the role of AI in society and the ethical challenges that accompany this expanding role.
