The objective is to debate, in a public forum, issues and problems related to these themes, in order to celebrate and contribute to the consolidation of research in the Ethics of Artificial Intelligence and to the regulation of AI in our country, integrating start-ups, companies, society and academic world.

It is about continuing the teaching, research and extension work of more than two decades, having honored in RAIES's 2019 colloquium the work of Bioethics, Moral Philosophy and Medical Ethics from Professor Dr. Joaquim Clotet, who introduced the first Bioethics research groups and committees in Brazil, and addressed in 2020 and 2021 bioethical issues, neuroethics and new AI technologies in the face of the normative and systemic challenges of the global pandemic due to COVID-19, articulating the different and interactive contributions of bioethics, neuroethics and AI ethics to consolidate a post-pandemic global scenario with more social inclusion and egalitarianism not only in the area of human health, but in all areas of human flourishing in its integration with the environment, society and new technologies.
