Dear Air-L community,

the following announcement may be of interest to those on the list who are interested in the debate about the ethics of technology and how this is being applied by the engineering and technological design community.

Best wishes,

The Human Standard:
Why Ethical Considerations Should Drive
Technological Design Webinar

18 April 2017 at 12:00PM- 1:00PM EDT

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 the products, services or systems they are building and how they are being built before making them 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.

Key insights from the Working Group Chairs of three IEEE-SA projects will be presented. The IEEE Global Initiative provided the input and recommendations that led to the creation of Working Groups for these IEEE-SA standards projects:

IEEE P7001™: Transparency of Autonomous Systems<http://emailaccount.cmail20.com/t/t-l-klltyhy-btruyudju-n/>

IEEE P7003™: Algorithmic Bias Consideration<http://emailaccount.cmail20.com/t/t-l-klltyhy-btruyudju-p/>s

Speakers will provide their perspectives on why it is important for business leaders to increase due diligence relative 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.
