Implementing Ethics in Emerging Technologies

Speaker:  Carol J Smith – Pittsburgh, PA, United States
Topic(s):  Society and the Computing Profession


Ethics discussions abound, but translating “do no harm” into our work is frustrating at best, and obfuscatory at worst. We can agree that keeping humans safe and in control is important, but implementing ethics is intimidating work. Learn how to wield your preferred technology ethics code to make systems that are accountable, de-risked, respectful, secure, honest and usable. The presenter will introduce the topic of ethics and then step through a framework to guide teams successfully through this process. 

This talk is for teams working on (or anticipating working on) emerging technologies such as artificially intelligent (AI) systems. Attendees do not need any previous experience or knowledge about ethics.
