It takes a community of people to be this unethical. In this great talk Theo argues that ethics is everyone’s responsibility. Referring to a wide range of ethicists and computers scientists, as well as his own experiences, Theo has created a presentation that questions the ways ethics is being applied in our industry. He argues that no one is perfect, and we need to understand the importance of practical wisdom in order to apply ethical principles. From the VW emissions scandal to Uber greyball, Theo takes us through some of the biggest ethical lapses in recent tech history and argues that as a profession we need to make ethics and morality pervasive in what we do.
