Ways that practitioners can advocate for diversity
Designing Ethical Futures is a guided talk about the technologies we design today. Participants will also discuss the ways they are shaping our collective future. Exponential technologies are an increasingly normal part of our lives. As a result, there are unintended consequences: some good, some bad. This session draws on Designing Ethical Technology, a digital experience design research project that is a component of Aparna’s MA, Digital Experience Design, Hyper Island, UK.
Focus of Designing Ethical Futures
Aparna Ashok guides a talk that centres on human-centred frameworks. The session also includes discussion about ways that practitioners are incorporating ethics into technology as a way of steering towards a preferable future. Participants take a dive into the importance of inclusion while considering the implications of overlooking plurality. Considerations extend to future visions, narratives, products, and most certainly, services. Foremost, the session seeks to arrive at concrete ways that futurists can practice and advocate for diversity.
