851-0253-07LConsciousness Studies Belegung eingeschränkt - Details anzeigen
Number of participants limited to 40.
W2 KP2SK. Stocker
KurzbeschreibungCovers research on levels and states of consciousness. Levels: conscious vs. pre-/sub-/nonconscious. States: ordinary (OSC, waking consciousness) vs. altered states of consciousness (ASCs, e.g., sleeping/dreaming, hypnosis, meditation, pharmacologically altered state). Applications in health/clinical psychology, and implications for the scientific mind (insight, flow) are also considered.
LernzielTo introduce students to the basics of consciousness studies, and to thus help them to gain a deeper understanding of how the mind works. Includes practical implications for the scientific mind.
InhaltThe study of consciousness involves scholars from diverse fields, such as psychology, neuroscience, cognitive science, philosophy, linguistics, computer science, medicine, religious studies, anthropology, as well as literature and art studies. In this course, the study of consciousness is presented from the point of view of psychology. At the same time, the course will additionally also consider interdisciplinary viewpoints.

Psychological consciousness studies involve research on levels and states of consciousness. Psychologically researched levels of consciousness are the conscious, preconscious, unconscious/subconscious, and nonconscious levels of mental processing. Psychological research on states of consciousness takes waking consciousness as the most common state (ordinary state of consciousness, OSC), using it as a baseline against which altered states of consciousness (ASC) are compared. Some of the most prominently researched ASC in psychology will be introduced in this course and include sleeping/dreaming, hypnosis, meditation, as well as ASC that are induced through either sensory deprivation/overload or psychoactive drugs.

In this course, it will also be shown how a growing number of applied consciousness studies investigate the potential of being temporarily in an ASC for promoting/maintaining health (health psychology) or as part of clinical treatment (clinical psychology and psychiatry). Finally, in this course, two mental phenomena that are also highly relevant for the scientific mind – insight and flow – are also introduced from a consciousness-studies perspective.
851-0254-00LNetwork Science Project

W3 KP2PU. Brandes, C. Stadtfeld
KurzbeschreibungStudy project involving network data in a selected field.
LernzielPractical experience with, and a contextual understanding of, the links between a research question, domain-specific theory, and computational methods in network science.
InhaltIndividually or in small groups, students carry out a project in which an original research question is addressed using network data. While network approaches are increasingly common in domains from archaeology and digital media to transportation and zoology, applications are often driven by the availability of (found, observational) data.

Special emphasis is therefore placed on the consideration of domain-specific theory and the possibility to adapt data collection and mathematical methods accordingly. Studies may vary by domain of interest and the relative importance of theory, data, methods, implementation issues, and other aspects. In particular, the focus may be on data collection instruments or theory-inspired method development and implementation.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesProject topics will be introduced during an initial meeting on Friday, March 5, 16:15-17:45, in WEP J 11. Subsequent meetings with the respective project teams will be by appointment.

W2 KP2SE. Vayena, A. Blasimme, C. Brall, F. Gille, M. Schneider, J. Sleigh
KurzbeschreibungThis workshop focuses on understanding and managing the ethical and social issues arising from the integration of new technologies in various aspects of daily life.
LernzielExplain relevant concepts in ethics.
Evaluate the ethical dimensions of new technology uses.
Identify impacted stakeholders and who is ethically responsible.
Engage constructively in the public discourse relating to new technology impacts.
Review tools and resources currently available that facilitate resolutions and ethical practice
Work in a more ethically reflective way
InhaltThe workshop offers students an experience that trains their ability for critical analysis and develops awareness of responsibilities as a researcher, consumer and citizen. Learning will occur in the context of three intensive workshop days, which are highly interactive and focus on the development and application of reasoning skills.

The workshop will begin with some fundamentals: the nature of ethics, of consent and big data, of AI ethics, public trust and health ethics. Students will then be introduced to key ethical concepts such as fairness, autonomy, trust, accountability, justice, as well different ways of reasoning about the ethics of digital technologies.

A range of practical problems and issues in the domains of education, news media, society, social media, digital health and justice will be then considered. These six domains are represented respectively by unique and interesting case studies. Each case study has been selected not only for its timely and engaging nature, but also for its relevance. Through the analysis of these case studies key ethical questions (such as fairness, accountability, explain-ability, access etc.) will be highlighted and questions of responsibility and tools for ethical practice will be explored. Throughout, the emphasis will be on learning to make sound arguments about the ethical aspects of policy, practice and research.

851-0648-00LMachine Learning for Global Development Belegung eingeschränkt - Details anzeigen
Number of participants limited to 24

Prerequisite: Students on BSc or MSc level who have already successfully participated in a data science and programming course.
W3 KP2GJ. D. Wegner, L. Hensgen, A. Rom
KurzbeschreibungIn this course students will learn theories of machine learning and its application to problems in the context of global development, with a focus on developing countries (e.g. predicting the risk of child labor or chances of a malaria outbreak). By the end of the course, students will be able to critically reflect upon linkages between technical innovations, culture and individual/societal needs.
LernzielThe objective of this course is to introduce students with a non-technical background to machine learning. Emphasis is on hands-on programming and implementation of basic machine learning concepts to demystify the subject, equip participants with all necessary insights and tools to develop their own solutions, and to come up with original ideas for problems related to the context of global development. Specific importance is placed upon the reconciliation of the predictions, which have been generated by automated processes, with the realities on the ground; hence the linkage between technical and social issues. This raises questions such as “In how far can we trust an algorithm?”, “Which factors are hard to measure and therefore not integrated in the algorithm but still crucial for the result, such as cultural and social influences?”. These questions will be discussed in the interdisciplinary group, equipping students with various perspectives on this crucial and very current debate.
InhaltThis course will give an introduction to machine learning with emphasis on global development. We will discuss topics like data preprocessing, feature extraction, clustering, regression, classification and take some first steps towards modern deep learning. The course will consist of 50% lectures and 50% hands-on programming in python, where students will directly implement learned theory as a software to help solving problems in global development.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesThis course will give an introduction to machine learning with emphasis on applications in global development. It will consist of 50% lectures and 50% programming exercises (in python). Teaching assistants from the EcoVision Lab will help with all programming exercises without any needs for additional funding.

Students should bring their laptops to the exercises because we will program on laptops directly.

It is required that students enrolling in this course have successfully passed a course that deals with basic data science and are familiar with programming (preferably in Python).

851-0347-00LLes mondes de la littératureW+3 KP2VD. Eribon
KurzbeschreibungNous essaierons de voir comment la littérature a abordé de multiples questions historiques, sociales, politiques en les inscrivant dans les trajectoires individuelles et collectives, à travers l’écriture biographique, autobiographique, autofictionnelle, autoanalytique.
LernzielNous relirons sous cette lumière des auteurs francophones tels que Paul Nizan, Aimé Césaire, Léon-Gontran Damas, Edouard Glissant, Maryse Condé, Patrick Chamoiseau, André Gide, Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, Jean Genet, Violette Leduc, Annie Ernaux, Edouard Louis… En plaçant leurs œuvres en regard de celles d’auteurs non-francophones qui procèdent de manière comparable.
Inhalt« Je suis née en 1842 » écrit Assia Djebar dans le premier volume de son autobiographie, L’amour, la fantasia, paru en 1985. C’est-à-dire quand les troupes coloniales françaises ont incendié le village de ses ancêtres. Pour elle, née en 1936, restituer son histoire personnelle revient donc à restituer et à explorer l’histoire de l’Algérie pendant un siècle et demi. En prenant cet exemple frappant pour point de départ, nous essaierons de voir comment la littérature a abordé de multiples questions historiques, sociales, politiques en les inscrivant dans les trajectoires individuelles et collectives, à travers l’écriture biographique, autobiographique, autofictionnelle, autoanalytique. Nous relirons sous cette lumière des auteurs francophones tels que (entre autres, bien sûr) Paul Nizan, Aimé Césaire, Léon-Gontran Damas, Edouard Glissant, Maryse Condé, Patrick Chamoiseau, André Gide, Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, Jean Genet, Violette Leduc, Annie Ernaux, Edouard Louis… En plaçant leurs œuvres en regard de celles d’auteurs non-francophones qui procèdent de manière comparable.

We will review methodologies based on Marxist historiography, sociology of science and contemporary science studies.
851-0198-00LPhilosophy of Psychiatry Belegung eingeschränkt - Details anzeigen
Findet dieses Semester nicht statt.
W+3 KP2V
KurzbeschreibungPsychiatry is one of the most controversial areas of medicine because it is concerned with beliefs, moods, relationships, and behaviors. This course offers an overview of some representative topics in philosophy of psychiatry.
LernzielThe objective of this course is to offer historical context and philosophical reflection on mental disorders and psychiatric practices.
InhaltPsychiatry is one of the most controversial areas of medicine. All medicine involves some negotiation about assumptions and values, at the professional-patient and societal levels. For example, its clinical categories are imposed on the subject, who is interpreted according to a given physiological (but also political and economical) framework. However, because psychiatry is primarily concerned with beliefs, moods, relationships, and behaviors, this negotiation actually constitutes the bulk of its clinical endeavors. This course offers an overview of some representative topics in philosophy of psychiatry. Some of these are the character of mental disorders, the takeover of the mind by the medical model, the demarcation of normal and abnormal behavior, the influence of culture in the understanding of mental disorders, a critical understanding of the DSM and its evolution, and the interplay between psychiatry and legal responsibility.
851-0610-00LThe Role of Finance in Tackling Climate Change Belegung eingeschränkt - Details anzeigen
Primarily suited for Master and PhD students.
W+3 KP2VB. Steffen, F. M. Egli, A. Stünzi
KurzbeschreibungThis course focuses on public policy to leverage finance in tackling climate change. We cover international negotiations as well as the role of governments in designing public policy for different financing actors (e.g. public and private) in developing and OECD countries.
Lernziel- Critically examine the role of finance (e.g. public vs private actors) in climate change and the energy transition
- Develop an understanding of the role and design of public policy to direct and mobilize finance
- Find out about current challenges in climate finance with a focus on Switzerland
InhaltReaching the 2°C climate target requires massive investments in low-carbon technologies. In 2015, the Paris Agreement underlined the responsibility of governments to align finance flows with climate change mitigation. Accordingly, a market for low-carbon investments emerged, but the available climate finance falls short of what is needed. Thus, political discussions on the international and national levels concern how public policies can better use the financial system to accelerate climate change mitigation. In this course, students will learn about the role of finance for the low-carbon transition in developing countries, in industrialized countries, and specifically in Switzerland. We will discuss existing policies, their effectiveness and the underlying political economy challenges to implement them. Combining recent academic findings and hands-on insights from guest lecturers, we will analyze structural challenges, conflicting positions in international negotiations and domestic policy-making, and the role of multilateral financial institutions. The course covers four key topics:
- The role of finance in climate change and the importance of public policy
- International climate finance and development
- Climate and energy finance in OECD countries
- Opportunities (and responsibilities) for Switzerland and its financial sector

The course has a highly interactive (seminar-like) character. Students are expected to give a presentation and to actively engage in the discussions. The presentation will also form part of the final grade, together with a final exam.
SkriptSlides and reading material will be made available via moodle.ethz.ch (only for registered students).
LiteraturA reading list will be provided via moodle.ethz.ch (only for registered students).
