Noted Irish architect Brian O’Connell takes us on a fascinating journey from a townhouse in 17th century Kilkenny where important principles of parliamentary democracy were first formulated to the steps of the US Capitol, with several stops at architectural shrines along the way.
Technology was never neutral; its social, political, and moral impacts have become painfully clear. But the stakes will only get higher as connected cameras will watch over the city, algorithms oversee society’s most critical decisions, and transport, jobs, and even war will become automated. The tech industry hasn’t yet earned the trust these technologies demand.
Drawing on years of research for his new book Future Ethics, designer Cennydd Bowles will illuminate the moral challenges that lie ahead for technologists, and discuss how practitioners and companies can create more thoughtful, ethical products for future generations.
World Information Architecture Day - Manchester 2017 Recorded on 18th February 2017
Keynote: Ethics In The AI Age - Cennydd Bowles
Over the next two decades, connected products will demand an unprecedented amount of user trust. Technologists and designers will ask the public for yet more of their attention, more of their data, more of their lives. AIs will know users’ deepest secrets. Co-operating devices will automate security and safety. Autonomous vehicles will even make life-or-death decisions for passengers.
But ours is an industry still unwilling to grapple with the ethical, social, and political angles of our futures. We mistakenly believe that technology is neutral; that inert objects cannot have moral characteristics. And so we make embarrassing blunders – racist chatbots, manipulative research, privacy violations – that undermine trust and harm those we should help.
This is a dangerous trajectory. We urgently need a deeper ethical dialogue about emerging technology, and design’s role within it.
In collaboration with NUX (Northern User Experience) and Manchester Metropolitan University, the first Manchester World IA Day event was held on 18th February 2017.
At Camp Digital 2019, Cennydd Bowles, reveals how tech workers and companies can mobilise for change, bringing ethics into the heart of their practice, and making technology more responsible, more just, and more democratic. Better worlds are possible, if we wish them.
