TA opportunity

We are looking for TAs for a new course, STV 208: Artificial Intelligence & Society.

These concerns include historical determinism, automation, surveillance, regulation, equity, fairness, and robo-ethics.  An overview will be provided on these issues as they arise in areas such as commerce, education, finance, journalism, law, literature, healthcare, transportation, warfare, and work.  
This course is a non-technical one—no background in AI is assumed or required.
 

If you are interested and qualified, please contact Wendy Stocker before the end of Wednesday, Dec. 8.  Thanks!
