Ethical and Theoretical AI Lab

Ethical and Theoretical AI Lab

The Ethical and Theoretical AI Lab propels frontier research on basic theories of artificial intelligence, with a particular emphasis on machine and cognitive behavior studies, as well as central issues in philosophy, ethics, AI verifiability, and AI interpretability. Adopting global perspectives, the Lab focuses on highly topical issues in these cutting-edge research fields. We plan to recruit best-in-class researchers over the next three years, with the aim of pioneering world-class research in Hong Kong, so as to build up China’s leading Ethical and Theoretical AI Lab. The Lab will also join hands with global industry leaders, including Huawei, etc., to promote synergy between theoretical and practical pursuits, to effect social impact, and to refine and develop the discourses used to discuss crucial issues in ethical and theoretical AI.
