AI Standards: Best Practices for Ethical Systems

Factors that relate to transparency in systems, the difference in outcomes that those factors can create, as well as practical techniques that can be applied to encourage a greater quality of transparency in consistent and rigorous ethical systems are explored in this course. Topics include factors that tend to drive or inhibit the quality of transparency in systems, small differences that may lead to major differences over time, and practical steps towards implementing more consistent and rigorous ethical systems.

Their Bionic Eyes Are Now Obsolete and Unsupported

Their Bionic Eyes Are Now Obsolete and Unsupported

More than 350 blind people around the world recently found themselves in a world in which the neural implant technology that transformed their lives was just another obsolete gadget. IEEE Spectrum pieced together their story by interviewing half a dozen patients, a company cofounder, and eight doctors or researchers involved with the company. In their telling, the future of high-tech vision implants seems blurrier than ever.

AI Standards: Configuring Systems for Privacy

The goals of this course are to familiarize the software engineer with key elements and concepts that can enhance privacy capabilities and safeguards in the software engineering and development process. Practical techniques are used to help the learner understand how to harness the assessment process to enhance privacy requirements and privacy-related controls. By the end of this course, you will understand how privacy assessments integrate into software engineering and software development models with an emphasis on fundamentals.

How Organizations Can Create Inclusive and Positive Online Experiences for Children

As part of its commitment to foster dignity, inclusion, identity, trust, and agency in digital and cyber physical environments, the IEEE Standards Association recently released the Applied Case Studies for Children’s Data Governance. The in-depth report provides practical steps for organizations and developers of technologies for children, as well as real-life examples of technology designed to foster positive and trustworthy interactions for children.

AI Standards: Organizational Transparency

In this course, a variety of elements are reviewed that can support or detract from achieving a goal of transparency at an organizational level. Ethical systems cannot be created in isolation of the organizational structures of the people creating them. Therefore, the elements that relate to organizational transparency are at least as important as those within technical systems.
