What are the techniques that enable computers to behave intelligently? What are some of the opportunities, challenges, and problems introduced by the emergence and growth of artificial intelligence? Artificial intelligence (AI) addresses questions at the intersection of many fields, including computer science, economics, bioinformatics, medicine, linguistics, philosophy, and psychology. It is a part of our everyday lives: googling some keywords, speaking into your phone to compose a text, using Facebook's facial recognition to tag people in a photo, playing chess against a computer, and using Google Translate to read a sign that is not in your language--these are all examples of AI in action. There are difficult ethical issues that emerge in relation to AI, such as the ways implicit biases are built into algorithms used to predict crime, the impact of robots on labor in the global economy, and the debate over whether intelligent computers deserve human rights.

Kalami, Sarpy

“Social justice is amiable formal, informal interaction and the impartial distribution of resources for a community.” (Cook, 2019). Too often, we hear about social injustices rather than the moments of communities coming together. In our society, media is a powerful agent to disseminate cultural and racial images of groups. In the past, harmful images have surfaced. A noticeable change is present with the creation of Netflix. However, is it enough? This course will explore Black history, social justice, and the representation of both in American Cinema.
