Örebro University

A close link between education, research and collaboration is the starting point for all our activities. We offer a wide range of attractive professional programs, in medicine, psychology, law and engineering. Our vision is to be a prominent university for a knowledge-driven society.

AI Ethics for Engineers

As AI systems become more common and expand their abilities, the decisions they made have a crucial impact on society as a whole. Whether they are designed to recommend content or product online, to assist judges or physicians in their decision-making, or to decide how to distribute mortgages or video surveillance cameras, these systems can have a crucial and lasting impact on all of us. For this reason, it is of paramount importance that those in charge of designing such systems work toward ethical and responsible systems. This course covers the theoretical and practical aspects of normative ethics and how they apply to AI systems, discuss how AI systems can become biased, as well as how to prevent and correct possible bias.  Through concrete examples, case studies, and project, this course aims at raising awareness on the problem of ethical AI as well as giving the students practical experience on how to ensure ethical and responsible development of AI systems in their everyday work. This course is given on-line with three mandatory Zoom-meetings. This course is directed towards working professionals.

Autonomous Robots and ROS

ROS (Robot Operating System) is a common set of tools used in academia to do research within autonomous systems. It shortly provides a middleware for handling communication, as well as interfacing sensors and actuators, visualization, simulation and datalogging and infrastructure where it is easy to share your own methods and algorithms. The latter has allowed a large set of different of state-of-the-art research approaches to be readily available for downloading. Due to its popularity it is also getting more widespread in the industrial community, especially in R&D. This course will give you hands-on experience how to utilize these tools and apply them to a problem of your choice.
