Technologists shape the world by our decisions, whether explicit or unexamined; our code constructs reality. As the automated systems we devise affect more lives, our responsibility weighs all the heavier. We need to examine what we mean by consent and disclosure, by opting in and data retention, by privacy and security. What does human-computer interaction look like when an artificial intelligence is learning from all it encounters in our flawed, messy, all-too-human world? Ethical questions around corner cases and defaults become critical when the stakes include human lives and freedoms. Let’s consider how to build a future where we want to live.
"Code creates reality" @bridgetkromhout is up on stage at #HashiDays and doing great (as usual) as devs/ops she advises us to make our world "slightly less terrible" and its more important than we believe !
