In the age of autonomous and intelligent machines, it is more important than ever to help technologists and organizations be cognizant of the ethical implications of what they build before their products, services, or systems are made available to the general public. While established codes of ethics provide instrumental guidance for employee behavior, new values-centric methodologies are needed to complement these codes to address the growing use of algorithms and personalization in the marketplace.
Hosted by the IEEE Standards Association Corporate Advisory Group, Values by Design will feature key perspectives on how modern organizations should be reframing their innovation process to prioritize ethical considerations for their systems processes and product development. Featuring artificial intelligence and ethics thought leader, Kay Firth-Butterfield, Executive Director of AI Austin and Vice-Chair of the IEEE Global Initiative for Ethical Considerations in Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Systems, attendees will learn
Values by Design will also feature an interactive workshop built on Ethically Aligned Design—A Vision for Prioritizing Human Wellbeing in Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Systems. Ethically Aligned Design is the first version of a document created by over one hundred AI/ethics thought leaders from The IEEE Global Initiative for Ethical Considerations in Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Systems (AI/AS) that contains over eighty pragmatic issues and candidate recommendations for technologists to utilize in their work today to create a positive future. As a way to experience specific ethical issues regarding AI/AS, attendees of Values by Design will be split into eight groups to provide workable insights that will be sent to the committees of the IEEE Global Initiative working on Version Two of Ethically Aligned Design.
Attendees will hear from Kay Firth-Butterfield, Marsali Hancock, and others who will provide their perspectives on why it is so key for business leaders to increase due diligence in regards to ethical considerations for what they create. This focus is not just about avoiding unintended consequences but also increasing innovation by better aligning with customer and end user values.
