November 3, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

Joseph Donia, PhD Candidate, Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation, University of Toronto

About this Seminar:
A variety of approaches have appeared in academic literature and in design practice representing “ethics-first” methods. These approaches typically focus on clarifying the normative dimensions of design, or outlining strategies for explicitly incorporating values into design. While this body of literature has developed considerably over the last two decades, two themes central to the endeavour of ethics and values in design have not yet been systematically discussed in relation to each other: (a) designer agency, and (b) the strength of normative claims informing the design process. This seminar will present the findings of a structured review of the research literature on these two themes, and discuss their implications for research and practice of ethical AI design for health.

Additional Details:
This event is free and is open to the general public.
