CHIFOO Event: Ethics In The Age Of Artificial Intelligence


CHIFOO presents "Ethics In The Age Of Artificial Intelligence" with Cennydd Bowles, Cennydd Ltd!

We mistakenly believe that technology is neutral; that inert objects cannot have moral characteristics. And so we make embarrassing blunders – racist chatbots, manipulative research, privacy violations – that undermine trust and harm those we should help.

This is a dangerous trajectory. We urgently need a deeper ethical dialogue about emerging technology, and interaction design's role within it. This session, informed by many months of ongoing research, will discuss:

Why companies make poor ethical decisions,
The development of ethical thinking in other morally-charged disciplines,
Methods of engaging users in the ethics of emerging technology,
Ways for designers to engage positively and affect ethical outcomes, so that design decisions benefit not only ourselves but our wider communities and the world at large.

About The Speaker
Cennydd Bowles' (@Cennydd) biography will be published shortly.
