The Accidental Ethicist: Making AI Human-Centered

In the last few years, many designers woke up to the huge implications of AI & data-driven tech. We’re facing the fact that we’re now all accidental ethicists.
It’s more than what many designers expected when they got into this practice.

So what’s a designer to do? As accidental ethicists ourselves, Jim Guszcza, Chief Data Scientist at Deloitte, and Molly Wright Steenson, an associate professor of design, AI and ethics at Carnegie Mellon will show you how human-centered approaches to design build your ethical toolkit. We will build on your existing knowledge and give you new ways to frame problems, design user behavior, and help to make AI more explainable — among other topics. We all have ethics and AI questions. This session gives you a way to start to answer them.
