UXPA Boston, in collaboration with Triangle UXPA: Where Next for Ethical Text?
TriUXPA is holding a World Usability Day event from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. EDT on Thursday, November 11. All UXPA Boston members can register for free here: https://triuxpa.org/event-4511340. Cennydd Boyles, Managing Director of NowNext Studio, will be presenting “Where Next for Ethical Tech?”
In recent years an ethics movement has erupted within the tech sector – but it too faces a difficult future. Questions of impact dog the field, and its vocal figures have faced resistance or even outright hostility from the companies they advise. Cennydd Bowles, author of Future Ethics, will explore a movement at a crossroads. Will the industry regain the trust emerging technologies demand? What causes nascent ethical initiatives to succeed or stumble? Can mobilised workers genuinely shift the cultures of tech firms? And what emerging themes, from regulation to radical inclusion, will shape the moral future of technology?
