Personal, Societal, and Ethical Dimensions of Artificial Intelligence

About this event

Grades: 9-12  

About this Symposium: 

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is all around us, whether we know we’re interacting with it or not. AI developers can teach computer systems to recognize patterns and make predictions, helping humans tackle complex problems. However, the datasets used to train these systems have often resulted in AI that mirrors human biases, raising questions about inclusive and ethical use of these technologies. Over the course of a month, the symposium will offer asynchronous and synchronous virtual learning opportunities for high schoolers to consider the personal, societal, and ethical dimensions of AI.


This Symposium offers multiple asynchronous and synchronous virtual learning opportunities, including:

  • Week of March 28, 2022: Content Kick-Off

Registered educators will receive digital resources to introduce artificial intelligence in their classrooms. Resources may include infographics, short videos, interactive activities, and more.

  • Wednesday, April 6, 2022: Live Career and Research Panels

Educators will register their students to attend one 45-minute long Live Career and Research Panel on Wednesday, April 6th at 11am or 1pm ET on YouTube via Live Stream.

On YouTube, students and teachers will be viewers only. Viewers will have the opportunity to ask the panelists questions as time allows.

  • Week of April 11, 2022: Critical Conversations

Registered educators will receive a digital Educator Tool Kit to facilitate classroom dialogue around the personal, societal, and ethical dimensions of AI.


This virtual event is open to all U.S. High Schools. Advanced reservations are required. There is a limited capacity for this virtual event.  

Register up to 10 classrooms (~300 students and teachers) for this event using Eventbrite. If you are interested in registering more than 10 classrooms, please email us at 

This Symposium is provided free of charge for students and teachers through the generosity of BNY Mellon.
