🚀 THE TALK 🚀

Digital technologies are increasingly becoming subject to ethical considerations and require responsible design. The risks of engaging with a system are especially high for users who are not usually centered in design processes and/or subject to marginalization and discrimination. Ethics tries to prevent risks to users by guiding designers in making their solutions inclusive and diversity-aware. At the same time, ethical technology is a key differentiator where – in a highly competitive market – long-term reputation and values are just as essential as products and services. In addition to protecting users and being the “right” thing to do in design, ethics thus also offers commercial advantages.

The Digital Ethics Compass introduced in this talk, is a tool that helps companies in making the right decisions from a design ethical standpoint. While analysing the tool – considering its different components – the case of the EU-funded WeNet project (www.internetofus.eu), will be presented. This will be a chance to provide an inspiring case to discuss challenges, tensions and opportunities that emerge when designing applications that should learn, leverage, and protect the diversity of their users through heavy data collection processes.

The talk will open up to a territory for evaluating the importance of designing with ethics in mind.
