Intelligence Without Ethics? Holding On To Our Values and Ourselves in the Digital Society @ Columbus
Nov 7 @ 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm
Intelligence Without Ethics? Holding On To Our Values and Ourselves in the Digital Society @ Columbus | Columbus | Ohio | United States
The Digital Society is remaking the fields of commerce, education, public health, and everything in between. While big data analytics, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things produce ample benefits, they also raise threats of panoptic surveillance and algorithmic determinism. Left unchecked, these forces can erode human dignity, autonomy, privacy, and freedom. Please join the Program on Data and Governance on Wednesday, November 7, as Professor Anita Allen, University of Pennsylvania, delivers a talk on “Intelligence Without Ethics? Holding On To Our Values and Ourselves in the Digital Society.”

Who is responsible for protecting our essential values in an age of information? Professor Allen argues that individuals, corporations, and governments each have distinct ethical obligations to constrain big data practices in the public interest. In the Sidley Austin Distinguished Lecture on Big Data Law and Policy, Professor Allen will explore the moral and legal agendas that can guide society to a future that is not just smart, but also ethical. Expert Commenter Professor Bart van der Sloot, Tilburg University, Netherlands, will comment on Professor Allen’s lecture and share his own, innovative theory on how privacy also requires protection against information about oneself.

Parallelism in Architecture,Engineering & Computing Techniques” -2nd Edition @ London
Nov 8 – Nov 9 all-day
Parallelism in Architecture,Engineering & Computing Techniques” -2nd Edition @ London | England | United Kingdom
The high pace of technology, particularly after the long wave of industrialization and artificial intelligence, has altered the way we see the universe. The human contribution to almost every field became passé, and now it is more about the synergy between the human and the technology. The conference represents and analyzes Parallelism as a way to understand and reveal the mechanism behind the interaction between Architecture, Environment and Computing techniques.

This conference unveils the new trends of architectural technologies and computational thinking that can adapt and improve finding a complex digital fabrication, augmented reality, and intelligent environment.

The conference represents an important forum for computational and digital architecture research that reconciles parallelism in different architectural and computing discourses. It also provokes discussion in state-of-the-art themes and topics, such as high performance computing, big data, advanced systems and interfaces, ubiquitous computing, as well as advanced fabrication technologies and tectonics. The conference also includes within its scope a number of workshops and technical sessions.

The second version of the PACT Conference is to be organized by the University of East London (UEL) in collaboration with the International Experts for Research Enrichment and Knowledge Exchange (IEREK)institution. The research, that is the main part of the debate, is to be contributed with and discussed over a number of sessions that are introduced and initiated with keynote lectures. The lectures are to be given by well-known speakers and continued by the exchange of knowledge and ideas between the researchers themselves.

Nov 9 all-day
Northeast Privacy Scholars Workshop 2018 @ New York City | New York | New York | United States
The SECOND Northeast Privacy Scholars Workshop will take place on November 9, 2018 at Fordham University School of Law

On behalf of the members of the Program Committee—Helen Nissenbaum, Kathy Strandburg, Joe Turow, Frank Pasquale, and Arvind Narayanan—we are excited to announce that the second annual Northeast Privacy Scholars Workshop will take place on November 9, 2018 at Fordham University School of Law in New York City.

A formal Call for Papers will be available on June 1, 2018, with abstracts due at the end of the summer. Paper drafts will be due in early October.

The Workshop takes a liberal view on the scope of privacy scholarship, and our goal is to include interdisciplinary scholars from a broad range of disciplines with a variety of perspectives. To that end, please feel free to share this Save The Date widely with all manner of privacy scholars, friends, and colleagues.

Ethical, legal and social implications of learning health systems (ELSI-LHS) @ Ann Arbor
Nov 9 @ 8:00 am – 3:15 pm
Ethical, legal and social implications of learning health systems (ELSI-LHS) @ Ann Arbor | Ann Arbor | Michigan | United States

Join us for our 3nd annual symposium and workshop on the ethical, legal and social implications of learning health systems (ELSI-LHS)!
This year’s focus will be on use cases and lessons learned from emerging learning health systems and their enabling technologies locally, in the state of Michigan, and across the US to address chronic diseases such as cancer. Special emphasis will be placed on themes and issues arising in previous symposia such as trust, systems ethics, and equity.

The event will be held on Friday, November 9 from 8 – 3:15 pm.

Our goal is to advance policy, practices, and interdisciplinary research addressing the ethical, legal and social implications of learning health systems (ELSI-LHS).To foster responsible research and innovation, we envision that multiple, diverse stakeholders (researchers, health care providers, citizens, policy makers, industry, etc.) will work together throughout the learning cycle to better align the process and outcomes with social values, needs and expectations.

Why War Games?

In recent years, many leading companies have introduced war games in cybersecurity and other strategic areas as a way to ensure that they are fully prepared for key challenges and unexpected risks. Similarly, the national security community has used war games to provide senior leaders deeper insights into issues, assumptions, and often counterintuitive understandings of decision-making that are not usually available from other qualitative research techniques. War games also provide participants an opportunity to participate in activities and wrestle with issues that are not part of their day-to-day experiences or particular fields of specialty.

Why Privacy War Games?

For privacy professionals who are tasked with managing privacy risk, privacy war games can be an effective way to practice strategic decision making in a risk free environment – before choices have to be made in the real world.

The Future of Privacy Forum and The Providence Group have collaborated to develop and conduct an analytical privacy war game designed to gain insights that will help privacy professionals manage future privacy risk – an increasingly complex task that is made more difficult by: the increasing number of state and sectoral privacy laws; evolving regulatory and compliance requirements; and the regulatory and legal ambiguity of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

What is the difference between a table-top exercise and our Privacy War Game?

A table-top exercise usually is a discussion-based game that allows participants, sitting around tables, to interact with one another from their current professional perspective. Table-top games engage players with a set of topics, sometimes in narrative form, and allow specific decisions to be considered. A facilitator will often add new information to spur players into exploring the relationship between their decisions or actions.

Our privacy war game, on the other hand, is a multi-player, scenario-based game with multiple game turns. In a scenario-based game, players are presented with a specific scenario starting point and then play the game through a series of game turns in which each of the game teams must react to and is influenced by the other player’s moves. This dynamic environment adds complexity to the game and forces players to think about both their decisions and the likely impact of the other teams in the game.

Additionally, because it is a multi-player game, game participants assume player roles on the game teams that do not necessarily comport with their current job. This provides game players a unique opportunity to explore a scenario from different perspectives, enabling deeper (and sometimes counter-intuitive) understandings of relevant privacy challenges.

What you’ll take away:

  • Benefit from an opportunity to “step into the shoes” of another stakeholder, ranging from business executives, regulators, legislators, courts, civil society groups, and consumers.
  • Learn what to watch out for as you: analyze and navigate a complex privacy scenario; and react to strategic responses and decisions made by other stakeholders who are playing the game.
  • Take home industry-specific best practices for managing privacy risk.

This Nov. 12 Privacy War Games event will be the beta version of this effort, so we are offering it at a discounted price to our FPF members. We will be using the feedback from this exercise to develop a program that we hope to replicate and offer more broadly.
