Ethics, Society, & Technology Unconference

May 13, 2021 - 9:30am to 2:30pm

Join the Ethics, Society, and Technology Hub for our first Unconference

Register here to attend. Participants are welcome to come and go from the event as their schedule allows. 

An unconference means the conference is driven by the interests of participants and sessions are created by all of us. If we were in person, we would gather at the beginning of the event and collaboratively set the agenda for the day together. Instead we invite members of the Stanford community to help collectively set the agenda by posting sessions to a shared doc. Participants do not need to lead a session to attend.

The session possibilities are endless—share current research or projects, ideas you’re exploring, teaching tools, or anything else that makes you curious and excited at the intersections of ethics, society, and technology.

Some current sessions on Thursday include:

  • Fireside chat: EST Hub Co-Director Rob Reich in conversation with Susan Liautaud about her new book The Power of Ethics 
  • Psychology vs. Technology: From AI Mediated Communication to Zoom Induced Fatigue (Jeff Hancock, Sunny Liu, Mufan Luo, & Hannah Mieczkowski)
  • New Perspectives: Artistically interrogating AI (Joe Khoury & Muhammad Khattak )
  • Centering Equity in Technology Education: Reflections on the Digital Civil Society Class Redesign (Toussaint Nothias and Ashley Lee)
  • Using Social Media to Reduce COVID-19 Vaccine Disinformation (Rachel Barber and Dr. Michael Gisondi)
