Stanford Seminar - Three Lessons Towards Ethical Tech

November 1, 2019

Casey Fiesler University of Colorado October 18, 2019 Hardly a week passes without a new technology ethics scandal-from privacy violations on social media platforms to biased algorithms to controversial data collection for training facial recognition systems. This talk describes three research projects from my lab that are working towards informing ethical practices in studying, designing, and building technology: (1) empirical work towards best practices for research ethics in data science, including guidelines for collecting public data; (2) a philosophy towards ethics education in computer science, including efforts towards integrating ethics into technical classes; and (3) research on computational projects in online fandom communities as an example of underrepresented groups building their own technologies. Taken together, these projects suggest several principles of everyday ethics in computing research and design.
