Ethics in Tech

Ethical considerations are a key part of building socially beneficial technology. In Ethics in Tech, we’ll examine issues related to technology, including bias, privacy, regulation, labor movements, and diversity and inclusion. Students will analyze existing technologies and computational systems to consider the impact that technology companies and workers have in building socially beneficial technology. The class will identify and discuss ethical and societal dilemmas in design, construction, and adoption. Through the introduction of human-centered design methods, students will engage in interactive design activities, discussions, and present a final research project.
