University of Cambridge: AI Ethics and Society

Institution University of Cambridge
Department Institute of Continuing Education
Study type Research


Artificial intelligence (AI) technology is rapidly developing and is increasingly being applied across sectors, posing significant ethical and societal challenges. The MSt in AI Ethics and Society is devoted to developing leaders who can tackle the hard AI questions that are most relevant for the workplace today, such as issues of privacy, surveillance, justice, fairness, algorithmic bias, misinformation, Big Data, responsible innovation, and more.

The MSt in AI Ethics and Society is an academically rigorous part-time programme, drawing together a community of students from a rich mix of professional backgrounds including business, management, policy, technology, design, consultancy, law, communications, and others. The programme will provide students with the critical skills, knowledge and analytical abilities needed to identify and address ethical challenges as they arise in practice from the application of AI.

The MSt AI Ethics and Society is developed and taught by the University’s Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence (LCFI), a global research centre at the forefront of AI Ethics and impact research, in partnership with the Institute of Continuing Education. As the programme is run by a specialist research centre, rather than a department, the curriculum is uniquely multidisciplinary, informed by up-to-the-minute research developments, and incorporates experts from diverse areas, including philosophy, machine learning, computer science, policy, law, and more.

We are delighted to announce that our Master of Studies in AI Ethics and Society has won the 2022 CogX award for 'Best Course in AI'.
