Summer Training Program to Expand the Al and Data Ethics Research Community
Dates: June 3-August 4, 2024
Location: Northeastern University, Boston, MA
Contact: John Basl – [email protected]
Deadline: January 6, 2024
Description: This summer school is intended for graduate students with advanced training in applied ethics, ethical theory, philosophy of science, or other areas with potential research applications to AI and big data who would like to develop research capacities in the ethics of artificial intelligence (AI), data ethics, and the philosophy of technology.  Designing AI and machine learning systems to promote human flourishing in just and sustainable ways will require a robust and diverse AI and data ethics research community. However, there are few graduate programs that train students in these areas. The aim of this summer long, in person training program is to supplement resources in students’ home universities with ethical and technical skills necessary to research in this area.

PPE Graduate Summer Workshop
Dates: July 22-26
Location: Chapman University, Orange, CA
Contact: John Thrasher ([email protected]) or Ryan Muldoon ([email protected])
Deadline: Feb 1
Description: This weeklong summer workshop will combine the introduction of PPE methods with practical training and philosophical discussion. Topics include:
Rational Choice & Game Theory
Formal Political Theory: Spatial Theory & Coalitional Bargaining
Experimental Economic / Experimental Methods
Social Norms
Evolutionary Theory & Social Evolution
Agent-Based Modeling
This workshop pairs instruction on the basics of PPE methods with discussions of cutting-edge PPE research that uses those methods. The size of this workshop facilitates lecturers and organizers to get to know each student and to address any specific questions they have along the way. One added benefit of this format is the substantial possibilities for networking among the participants. The overlapping interests they explore here and the friendships they form will likely lead to future research collaborations. In addition to the instructional and research sessions, participants will also work on developing a PPE research project that they will present to the group at the end of the week.

Ethics of Attention Summer School
Dates: 1-5th July 2024
Location: Central European University, Budapest Campus
Contact: [email protected]
Application deadline: February 14th
This five-day intensive course investigates the ethical dimensions of attention. We live in the attention economy, where attention is commodified and manipulated. Attentional crises abound: big tech, social media, and the pandemic have eroded people’s attentional capacities. Attention, though, is paramount to personal and institutional flourishing. Attending to people, places, and projects is at the heart of love, community, justice, good relationships, creativity, art, education, and mental health. It is also a central, but overlooked, component of justice. We can wrong each other with attention patterns. Improper attention can also create unfair and dangerous social disparities; scientists might overlook medical differences between women and men, for example, and fail to notice this oversight. And yet theorists lack adequate frameworks for conceptualising and assessing this.

The summer school aims to remedy this. Participants first survey major theories of attention, including Asian philosophy, analytic philosophy, and psychology. They then apply these frameworks to real-life case studies about technology, media, advertising, power, prejudice, bias, colonialism, art, love, religion, self-improvement, mental health, science research, and skepticism about vaccines, pandemics, and climate change.
