Navigating the (Mis)Perceptions of Autonomous Vehicles
Autonomous vehicles are the future. Or are they? As with any potentially transformative technology, there is much to look forward to. But there is also plenty of hype. Join us at The Cooper Union in NYC on Thursday, 14 November as IEEE TechEthics hosts a public panel session addressing the facts and misperceptions of autonomous vehicles, particularly in the context of their impact on society. (Registration is required. Livestream will also be available.)
Livestream: Brave New Brain-Tech
Current and emerging neurotechnologies are being considered and used for a range of applications in medicine, public life, and national security operations. Broad international efforts in neurotechnology create new opportunities, issues, and challenges to establishing precepts and guidelines to assure sound research and use-in-practice. Sponsored by IEEE TechEthics in partnership with the IEEE Brain Initiative, this session at ISTAS 2019 will focus attention upon the need for neuroethico-legal guidelines/best practices and will emphasize IEEE's leadership in this space.
The 2019 IEEE International Symposium on Technology and Society takes place in Boston, MA, USA from 15-16 November. It is kindly hosted by the School of Engineering, Tufts University. ISTAS brings together engineers, policy makers, social scientists and technologists to share experiences and discuss the social, cultural, ethical and economic implications of technology. Early bird registration is available thru 18 October.
Supporting IEEE's Mission via Ethical Considerations of Technology
Advancing technology for the benefit of humanity is the IEEE tagline. In order for technology to benefit humanity, it is essential to address ethical concerns and societal implications. In this recent virtual panel, IEEE members discuss the various ways in which IEEE helps address the ethical and societal impacts of technology, why that's important, and how you can get involved.View on IEEE.tv
