Machine Learning and Natural Language technologies are integrated in more and more aspects of our life. Therefore, the decisions we make about our methods and data are closely tied up with their impact on our world and society. In this course, we present real-world, state-of-the-art applications of natural language processing and their associated ethical questions and consequences. We also discuss philosophical foundations of ethics in research.
