We are pleased to announce that the TU Delft Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geo Sciences (CEG) has joined the Delft Design for Values (DDfV) Institute. This means that five TU Delft faculties now collaborate on designing for values and responsible innovation. The other four faculties, who together established [...]
DDfV member Professor Neelke Doorn will receive a Vidi grant worth € 800,000 this year from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). She will use the grant to spend the next five years to develop an ethical theory and study the extent to which civic responsibility can be shared fairly and effectively in climate adaptation policy. Doorn hopes that this project will pave the way for climate policy that is not only effective, but also fair in the sense that everyone will benefit, not just highly educated people.
The Journal of Personalization Research (UMUAI) has released a call for papers for a special issue on fair, accountable and transparent recommender systems. Nava Tintarev, member of the management team of the Delft Design for Values Institute (DDfV), is one of the guest editors for this issue. Its topic aligns well with the core DDfV research themes. Deadline for the submission of an extended abstract is 5 June 2019.
In this free online course you will learn how organizations can evaluate their current position within RRI, rethink their strategies and develop a plan to embed RRI within their CSR and corporate citizenship strategic policies. One of the six modules of the course is dedicated to design for values.
Researchers at Delft University of Technology who are working on design for values are cordially invited to make use of this 2019 call for proposals for the “DDfV Open Subsidy”. The aim of this subsidy is to catalyze design for values research, by stimulating cooperation and synergy across groups and [...]
DDfV scientific director Jeroen van den Hoven will tomorrow make the keynote remarks at the sixth annual Justice Stephen Breyer Lecture on International Law of the Brookings Institute. Topic is 'Digital technology in the age of artificial intelligence: A comparative perspective'. His lecture will be followed by a panel discussion on transparency, data protection, privacy, and consumers' rights, drawing from Europe's experiences implementing the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
New technological developments in areas like quantum computing, big data, robotics, block chain, artificial intelligence (AI), and the internet of things (IoT) create opportunities, but also raise societal and ethical challenges. Design for Values is a powerful strategy to address them. In November 2019 the DDfV Institute will organize an executive masterclass Digital Ethics by Design. More information / request brochure
Researchers at Delft University of Technology who are working on design for values are invited to make use of the “DDfV Event Subsidy” for organizing events. The aim of this subsidy is to increase the visibility, awareness, and outreach of design for values activities through meetings, guest visits and workshops.
From 13 to 17 May 2019, Dr. Elisabeth Lex will visit TU Delft at the invitation of the DDfV Institute. Her work on credibility assessment and trust in recommender systems allows us to translate our values concerning misinformation and filter bubbles into technological norms and concrete design requirements. This work is strongly grounded in evaluation using behavioral user data, which allows us to assess value realization in design/engineering outcomes.
This online course, starting on 5 March 2019 will broaden your scope and diversify your take on the field of urban planning and design. We will focus on a unique Dutch approach and analyze how it can help those involved with urban planning and design to improve the physical environment in relation to the public good it serves, including safety, well-being, sustainability and even beauty.
