Technology Focus: An Interdisciplinary Discussion about Ethics and/in Tech
Questions about the role that ethics plays with respect to technological advances have grown more urgent as tech continues to reshape our interactions with one another and our understanding about ourselves. From data privacy/misuse of personal information, to cybersecurity, inclusive design, data transparency, and the implications of artificial intelligence — and so much in between — stakeholders across industry, government, higher education, and advocacy spaces have important roles to play in these complex conversations.
Join a distinguished panel of Barnard alums working at the intersection of tech and ethics, moderated by Saima Akhtar, Associate Director of the Vagelos Computational Science Center.
We’ll talk about ethics, technology, career paths, and your questions!
