Ethics of Algorithms

NSF IIS-1338205 EESE: 

Role: CO-PI

In this National Science Foundation funded research we aim to both bridge silos between philosophical and social scientific approaches to ethics in order to develop an integrated theoretical approach to ethics. Such a theoretical approach simultaneously identifies the analytical, moral reasoning that is happening during the conceptualization and design phase as well as critically analyzes the interplay between an individual’s personal ethics and values and the ethics and values created by aspects of policies, institutional, economic, and cultural contexts. We take an upstream view of design by focusing on the requirements behind conceptualizing and writing algorithms.
