Engaging with Ethics

Keeping our fellow humans safe and in control is important, but implementing ethics is intimidating

In this interactive session participants will learn about applying ethics to emerging technologies – how to wield technology ethics to make experiences that are accountable, de-risked, respectful, secure, honest and usable. We will then critique and engage with sets of technical ethics both at a high level and by comparing sets of ethics. Finally, participants will learn how to run their own abusability lab to get people engaged in this work by inspiring curiosity to actively speculate about misuse and abuse.

Who Should Attend

Anyone interested in design research and ethics and wants to create trustworthy experiences.
