Ethics for people who work in tech; how to integrate ethics in your projects

WOE 14:00 - 14:30

Zaal 5

Marc Steen will present several easy-to-use methods to integrate ethics in innovation and development projects. He suggests that computer and data scientists, software developers and engineers, designers, and others involved in the development and deployment of algorithms and AI systems, can improve their capabilities to integrate ethics into their projects. His presentation is also a pitch for his upcoming book ('Ethics for people who work in tech'). The book’s aim is to empower these people to take responsibility; to ‘upgrade’ their skills for ethical reflection, inquiry, and deliberation. It introduces ethics in an accessible manner, with practical examples, outlines of different ethical traditions, and with practice-oriented methods to ‘do ethics’: human-centred design, value sensitive design, and responsible innovation.
