Max Gadney sat down with author and designer Cennyd Bowles to discuss what technologists and the design industry can do to challenge the values and ethical principles of the work they do.
We’re back at Camp Digital and here is the final episode of our three special podcasts recorded live in Manchester’s Royal Exchange Theatre.
Hosted by Rebecca Rae-Evans, Activist, strategist, commentator & account manager at Sigma. She’s joined by podcast regular Ben White , Director at social enterprise Reason Digital.
Joining them for a deep dive into some of the topics raised throughout Camp Digital 2019 are Cennydd Bowles and Matt Edgar. They discuss the latest news, trends and controversies in ethical tech.
Cennydd Bowles is a London-based designer and writer with fifteen years of experience advising clients including Twitter, Ford, Cisco, and the BBC. His focus today is the ethics of emerging technology. He has lectured on the topic at Facebook, Stanford University, and Google, and is a sought-after speaker at technology and design events worldwide. His second book, Future Ethics, was published in 2018.

In this episode Laura and Liz discuss
Ethical brand designToxic technology and dark patterns
The need for tech industry diversity.
Accessibility and inclusivity.
How we can be more ethical as designers.
How we need to make sure we are working with ethical companies
This month I’m joined by Cennydd Bowles who I’ve been meaning to get on the podcast for over a year. We talk about his book Future Ethics, collective action in the tech industry, ethical design sprints and crits, design fictions to bring ethical thinking to the general public (think Black mirror), the law of double affect, and the tech industry and climate change.
This week on Function, Anil sits down with tech activists Leigh Honeywell, Mark S. Luckie, and Matt Rivitz, to talk about the frameworks which led to the massive protests we’re seeing today from tech workers.
David Reid warns of the dangers of encoding unconscious bias into artificial intelligence.
"It’s tempting, but extremely perilous, to outsource our moral responsibilities to machines…I believe it’s important to keep people in the loop, but it may also be important to evolve nurturing AI to guide the underlying AI. When we link this to emotional awareness, we may be able to develop empathy, and this empathy may be able to mitigate bias."
Recode’s Kara Swisher talks with six of the organizers of the Nov. 1 protests, who say the company’s response has been deeply inadequate.
Our fifth episode of the “Wireframe” digs into the intersection of design and ethical practice. In it we trace the origins of Facebook’s famous Like button back in time to a frenzied hackathon in the last decade when it was conceived as a way of easily spreading positivity all over the Internet. We then look at the massive, unintended consequences of that tiny but momentous bit of UI, and how it demonstrates a model for creating products you love so much you can’t put down, for better or worse. This was one of my favorite episodes because it endeavors to ask questions every designer should be thinking about in his or her work.

From Google search to Facebook news, algorithms shape our online experience. But like us, algorithms are flawed. Programmers write cultural biases into code, whether they realize it or not. Author Luke Dormehl explores the impact of algorithms, on and offline. Staci Burns and James Bridle investigate the human cost when YouTube recommendations are abused. Anthropologist Nick Seaver talks about the danger of automating the status quo. Safiya Noble looks at preventing racial bias from seeping into code. And Allegheny County’s Department of Children and Family Services shows us how a well-built algorithm can help save lives.
