Good Systems: Conceptual Investigations of Communication Technologies

The new Bridging Barriers theme, Good Systems, is focused on creating a framework for evaluating the societal and ethical implications of artificial intelligence and other (semi-) automated technologies/decision systems, and to encourage the development of good overall societal systems. Humanists, social scientists, and technologists are all involved in the effort.


Within the area of conceptual investigations, one specific area relates to conceptual issues in data communication, including considerations of social media, streaming video, gaming, virtual reality, distance learning, archiving, and communicated data quality. 

The purpose of this third meeting is to bring together colleagues who have worked on or have an interest in responsible and ethical communications systems. In this most important meeting, we will consolidate the Case Studies that we have studied thus far, and plan for the creation of a white paper reflecting our collective vision for future work in these areas. This will lead to potential planning for funded projects on these topics in the Spring.


Prof. Bovik will lead off with a 5-minute overview, then the floor will be open for discussion of the Case Studies. 

Light refreshments provided.
