Changes to the nature of work due to automation and data-driven technologies are a high policy priority for the European Union, Member-states and regional governments. While new technologies can create new jobs, many roles and tasks will also be transformed by the introduction of automation processes. Newly created positions and responsibilities may require combinations of digital and social skills that are currently in short supply.
At BISS and Brightlands Techruption we aim to be at the cutting edge of this transformation. Our aim is to help facilitate a digital transformation that has broad societal benefit, accountability, and support. For this reason, ‘Responsible Innovation and Ethics’ is a cross-cutting theme at BISS.
We are building on our existing momentum in this area by hosting a scoping workshop where we will discuss some of the societal and ethical challenges we face in our work. We will also explore how ideas and practices like ethics-by-design, responsible innovation, and responsible AI can help us to address these challenges.
In this discussion, we will take stock of where we are in terms of developing responsible innovation and ethics as a theme at BISS and Brightlands Techruption, what tools we have at our disposal, and how we can move forward.
A concrete outcome of this scoping workshop will be to begin planning a larger Ethics-by-Design and Responsible Innovation theme day at the campus, together with Techruption use cases, in the model of last years’ successful HR Tech day.
