Within the Big Data, AI, and Ethics programme from Trinity College Dublin learn about, and discuss, cutting-edge work from both within and outside academic moral philosophy and legal scholarship concerning the challenges posed by the ever-increasing use of AI.


Participants of the Big Data, AI, and Ethics programme from Trinity College Dublin are often working in the IT, finance, and banking sectors.

Students who complete the CPD programme will learn foundational ideas and theories from moral and political philosophy. As such, they will be equipped with the skills necessary for thinking critically and impartially about the moral and legal challenges raised by the ever-increasing use of AI and data in new technologies.
