About the Topic
Ethics is one of the core differentiators of a profession. It may not get discussed on a regular basis, but can be critical at key times. Thus observation of and adherence to key ethical expectations are crucial. In this talk, we discuss the latest update to the ACM Code of Ethics. The update comes due to various changes in computing since the previous update in 1992, such as number and severity of cybersecurity attacks increasing, artificial intelligence becoming ubiquitous in everyday applications, and the changes in the definition of technical leadership as in an open source community. This is expected to be an interactive session where we discuss the new code. We then go through some case studies on the topic of artificial intelligence. We will discuss ethics for autonomous vehicles and an artificial intelligence-driven small loan appraisal service.
