2018 CHIFOO Speaker Series
Do the Right Thing
HCI in Ethics...Where do we start?
The issue of manipulating people’s behavior and emotions in order to motivate a user to do something is an ethical and moral issue within computer human interaction realm that we need to address today.
Is it really up to the designer of the technology to determine whether or not the outcome is in the user’s best interest? The idea that it is up to all of us to determine this is in itself a moral and ethical issue.
Another ethical challenge within CHI is change. Change is the only thing that is constant, especially in the world of user experience design. How do we, as practitioners, keep expanding our perspectives as existing platforms continue to evolve and entirely new platforms emerge?
In 2018, CHIFOO is celebrating its 25th year. We will take up the discussion of ethics in design, user experience, augmented reality, virtual reality, and artificial intelligence to incorporate ethical ideas and keep our eyes on the rapidly moving target of anticipating the needs of our audience, and how far we have come in 25 years.
Pick and Choose
There are no bones about it this is going to be an excellent year for speakers, but sometimes it will be difficult to come to every meeting. Solve the problem by choosing a design category for the year to help you choose (if you must- we will miss you).
There are three categories of focus in this year's speaker series: HCI Ethics in Technology (Blue), HCI Ethics in Society (Orange), and HCI Ethics in Research (Green). Each category has been assigned a color so that it can be followed throughout the year more easily.
Please note: CHIFOO wants to make sure that each meeting is a great experience for everyone. If you need an accommodation to help you better enjoy CHIFOO meetings and events please let our CHIFOO Programs Chair know how we can help a few days prior to CHIFOO event.
