Hi all,
Please join us next Tuesday, April 23, for a presentation by Jared Moore.

Where: CSE 203
When April 23, 12:00-1:00pm

What:
*abstract*
In the past few years, the term “ethics” has increased in prominence with
regard to computer science and related disciplines. It’s everywhere—in New
York Times opinion articles, grants from the Mozilla Foundation, and in
standards discussion groups at the IEEE. In many ways, this increased
prominence tracks growing awareness with the ills of computational
disciplines. It responds to privacy scandals at Facebook, flying killer
robots assisted by Google, and in technological encroachment described as
colonial. In this talk, I describe the state of ethics in computer science,
why it matters, who is involved, and what it accomplishes.
