From privacy breaches and biased algorithms to election meddling and autonomous car crashes, tech ethics have made major headlines over the past two years. How should companies anticipate pitfalls and avoid ethical missteps that come from new technologies and ways of working? Can ethics be considered without slowing innovation? Should designers and developers adhere to a code of ethics? What can we — as entrepreneurs, employees, and consumers — do to build technology that serves humanity while preventing the next tech ethics scandal? In this panel discussion, experts in tech ethics, data science, and social innovation will share their perspective on current issues and potential solutions. Spark your “ethical imagination” and learn how the tech community can build its capacity for more thoughtful, inclusive contributions to the digital economy and the future of work.
