Introducing Ethical Explorer
The techlash has come of age. Media, policymakers and customers are asking harder questions about the role technology plays in society and democracy. Complex topics such as bias in AI or surveillance can seem overwhelming. It can be hard to know where to start. But you - as a designer, product manager or their collaborator - have more power than you think, and everything starts with conversation.
In this interactive session, we'll walk you through the Ethical Explorer, a free toolkit aimed at those building and designing tech to help consider potential harms or brainstorm positive solutions. Whether you're working on a new product or updating an existing system, Ethical Explorer can help you find a way into complex topics, and how you can contribute to a more equitable technology future.
We have a range of passes available to suit every schedule. All the conference and festival content will be available on-demand for three months after the event.
