This Lifelong Learning mini-series presents several contemporary issues pertaining to the social impact of data-related technologies and then seeks to apply Jewish ethical perspectives to these issues.
Led by Henry Morris from Shir Hadash. Henry Morris is president of Shir Hadash and co-author of “Augmented Intelligence: The Business Power of Human-Machine Collaboration” (CRC Press 2019).
April 23, Session 1 examines several Jewish texts pertinent to the rights of workers, such as the obligation on employers to treat workers with dignity and to provide a living wage. Then we consider several contemporary issues stemming from the impact of artificial intelligence on the workplace. These include the division of human vs. machine responsibilities in a work process and society’s responsibilities to workers who are displaced by automation. Do the Jewish perspectives provide guidance to us today on how to deal with these issues?
April 30, Session 2 examines several Jewish texts pertinent to the privacy of personal conversation and writings and the need to provide informed consent to grant access to others. These include opt-in vs. opt-out for granting another party permission to access your personal data and the ability to rescind this choice later on. Then we consider several contemporary issues related to the individual right to privacy in the context of business or government surveillance of individuals. Do the Jewish texts provide guidance to us on how to deal with today’s issues?
