Description

Why we need a New Digital Ethics? The case of cyber conflicts- co-hosted with the Institute for Analytics and Data Science

Human Rights Centre Speaker Series | Tuesday 23 January | 13:00 - 14:30 | Human Rights Centre Seminar Room, 5S.6.25

Chair: Cath Kent, project officer of the Human Rights, Big Data and Technology Project

Dr Mariarosaria Taddeo is Research Fellow at the at the Oxford Internet Institute, University of Oxford, where she focuses mainly on the ethical analysis of cyber security practices, cyber conflicts, and ethics of data science. She received the World Technology Award for Ethics acknowledging the originality and her research on the ethics of cyber conflicts, and the social impact of the work that she developed in this area. Since 2016, Taddeo serves as editor-in-chief of Minds & Machines (Springer), in the executive editorial board of Philosophy & Technology (Springer).

In this talk Dr Mariarosaria Taddeo will focus on Digital Ethics as a new branch of ethics that studies and evaluates moral problems related to data, algorithms, and corresponding practices, in order to formulate and support morally good solutions. She will argue that Digital Ethics meets the need for ethical analyses posed by the development of Data Science and its ubiquitous deployment in our societies by providing the solutions that can maximise the value of Data Science for our societies, for all of us, and for our environments. Cyber conflicts will provide a case study to support this argument.

All welcome.
