Program Description: 

Ethical Tech Design concerns responsible choices in the practice of design and development of Artificial Intelligence enabled technologies. Project managers can play a key role in humanizing AI in all phases of the technology lifecycle. As project managers work with clients, colleagues, and the end users of products, ensuring product features and processes are ethically driven, will help establish the ethical significance of the project and improve the activity of designing. This is a working session. There will be ample time to unpack use cases giving Project Managers experience with leading and recognizing how to address potential ethical challenges in AI. We will also discuss ways professionals can align their efforts in their community to gain additional practice and insights into the subject of Ethical Tech Design.
