Register by 10/1/18 ASIS&T 2018 SIG SI, IEP, SM Workshop: The 14th Annual Social Informatics Research Symposium: Sociotechnical perspective on ethics and governance of emerging information technologies

Vancouver, Canada, November 10, 2018
The emergence and fast-paced development of technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), big data analytics, virtual and augmented reality, and embedded and ubiquitous computing present myriad forms of opportunities and challenges. For example, the increasing role of AI in autonomous systems (e.g., self-driving cars or production robots) and the role of social media in disseminating misinformation have created anxieties in our society ranging from discussions about safety, job security, and the future of democracy. Understanding the impacts of emerging technologies requires a multidisciplinary, sociotechnical approach; accordingly, this line of investigation must inevitably engage with major questions regarding sustainability, privacy, human agency, equity, and the ethics and governance of information technologies.
The Social Informatics, Information Ethics and Policy, and Social Media SIGs seek contributors for a full-day pre-conference workshop, the 14th Annual Social Informatics Research Symposium, scheduled for Saturday, 10 November, 2018 from 09:00 am – 05:00 pm during the ASIS&T annual meeting.
