Ethics, Technology, and You: Pragmatic Scenarios and Frameworks for Guidance

September 26, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Rebecca (Becky) Taylor (The Ethics Project at UT Austin) // September 26th, 2019 // 1:00pm-2:00pm //RLP 1.302C

Are we lost as a society when it comes to the technologies we build, those that we depend on, and those that shape our desires and experiences? What are the ethics of new technologies? Join the UT Ethics Project for a discussion of practical stories, pressing issues, and ethical concerns in our efforts to build, sell, and use technology. Rebecca Taylor, an Industry Fellow of the Ethics Project, will show us how tech firms are in a maze now with no viable map to escape some of their most pressing ethical quandaries. Discussion will be encouraged during this session.

Rebecca Taylor is a Managing Partner at RST Associates, LLC. and is the Industry Fellow for The Ethics Project at UT Austin. She brings more than 30 years of technology and business experience to the project, in both startups and large organizations. Ms. Taylor’s experience, together with an abiding interest in developing ethical frameworks that are practical and impactful, will aid The Ethics Project in learning more specifically what ethical issues are of most importance to industry and other non-academic organizations. She is available to discuss areas of interest to the technology and greater business community, in terms of practical dilemmas facing companies as they build advanced technology products.
