This year the workshop will consider ethical issues in the rollout of autonomous driving technology, in particular the role of information and data. As automatic driving becomes more and more a focus of automotive development, regulatory agencies are behind the curve in terms of setting guidelines and accountability rules with regard to the large amounts of data that are generated and stored by the systems. Who owns the information? How is the aggregation of the data - necessary for the engineering development - to be handled? Do the norms and practices of Silicon Valley translate to the automobile industry? All pertinent information about the cases will be given at the workshop - you don’t need to study ahead of time.
Students from past years report that they have really enjoyed the atmosphere of small group and informal interactions with faculty and students from other colleges. A main goal of the workshop is for students from each college to experience the perspectives and viewpoints of members of the other colleges. We have also found that more and more, employers are interested in applicants who have had some exposure to ethics during their academic careers.
