All Tech Is Human: Seattle is a smorgasbord of ethics, emerging tech, and unintended consequences. A diverse group of technologists, academics, designers, organizational leaders, students, policymakers, and other interested parties come together to tackle thorny societal tech issues. It is multidisciplinary and collaborative, shining a light on blind spots and injecting more thoughtfulness in how we create and implement new technologies.
Please join us for this ethical tech summit (#EthicalTechSummit) on Saturday, May 18th!
Around the world, an increasing number of organizations and independent voices are calling for a more thoughtful, transparent, and equitable tech future. Now how can we build cohesion among these interested parties? And how can we make sure the conversation remains open and inclusive?
All Tech Is Human: Seattle aims to convene a variety of groups and thought-leaders that are actively -- but often separately -- offering solutions around more ethical and equitable tech development. This will be a human-centered, action-oriented event of lightning talks, panels, strategy session, and intentional networking.
The event is from 9 am to 5 pm, and includes a light breakfast, lunch, and cocktails.
Speakers and participants (150 total) will include technologists, organizational leaders, policymakers, academics, advocates, students, designers, and other interested parties looking to tackle thorny tech/social issues (i.e. algorithmic bias, misinformation, diversity in tech, unintended consequences).
Attendees can expect to leave with a more nuanced understanding of the challenges facing us today, more awareness of the growing ethical tech ecosystem, and concrete opportunities to engage in collaborative efforts. This is not an event where you just sit back and watch a person on stage--we aim for active participation and engagement where a multidisciplinary melting challenges each other, considers best practices and methods of knowledge-sharing, and finds areas of collaboration.
