Advancing technology for the benefit of humanity is the IEEE tagline. In order for technology to benefit humanity it needs to be universally available and well-received. Part of developing and moving technology into widespread use is to address ethical concerns that might arise.

IEEE TechEthics provides a platform for addressing ethical and societal implications across a variety of technology areas. The program launched with a focus on artificial intelligence and autonomous systems and will grow over time.

The IEEE TechEthics website will serve as a central resource on ethics activities across IEEE and the broader technology community.

Be sure to join the IEEE TechEthics Community so you can keep abreast of IEEE's ethics activities, engage in the conversation, and more.

Tech giants and startups that use machine learning—especially cutting-edge deep learning algorithms—will need to grapple with the potential biases in their AI systems sooner rather than later.
