Ethical algorithm design should guide technology regulation: A Conversation with Computer & Information Science Professor Michael Kearns
Ethical algorithm design should guide technology regulation. In other words, better coding, not just laws and regulations, is the solution for tech’s failure to address the needs of actual humans.

This will be a conversation with Penn Professor Michael Kearns about the themes of his new book The Ethical Algorithm: The Science of Socially Aware Algorithm Design.

3-3:30: Michael Kearns gives an overview of the main themes of the book
3:30-4 (or later): Q&A with the group
