As scientists study artificial intelligence (AI), its potential uses continue to expand. Yet, behind each new development and breakthrough lie a host of serious ethical questions that make the field feel as murky as it is vast.

At Neuroscience 2019’s Dialogues Between Neuroscience and Society lecture, Fei-Fei Li, a pioneering expert in AI, discussed the transformative potential machine learning poses for society. From her dual perspective as a scientist and a leader in ethics, Li advocates for future technologies to enhance, not replace, elements of the human experience.
