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.
A short video was published yesterday in which Prof. Dr. Jeroen van den Hoven speaks about design for values, responsible innovation and governments as 'launching customers' for realizing a good information society. He believes that there are many opportunities in this area for both the Netherlands and Europe.
It is our pleasure to announce a CfP for a special issue in the journal SIMULATION. This journal is dedicated to the practice of computer simulations from several disciplines, and therefore it reaches out to a number of computer scientists, researchers, and engineers. The special issue is on the ethics and societal dimension of computer simulations, and it will be edited by DDfV scientific director Jeroen van den Hoven and DDfV researcher Juan Duran. If you are doing research on this topic, you are cordially invited to submit a paper.
"Conny Bakker is Professor of Design Methodology for Sustainability and Circular Economy at the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering (IDE). When devising products for a circular economy, designers need to look much further ahead, beyond the product’s first life to new forms of reuse and – ultimately – recycling."
The Dutch National AI Course is a free online course that was launched in Januari 2019. Aim of the course is to inform as many Dutch people as possible about the basic principles of artificial intelligence (AI). Professors Jeroen van den Hoven (Delft Faculty of TPM) and Catholijn Jonker (Delft Faculty of EEMCS), scientific director respectively advisory member of the DDfV Institute, are among the experts interviewed for the course.
The TU Delft Teaching Lab invites all interested stakeholders to a one-day conference on ‘Design for Well-being Education’, to take place on 5 April 2019. In this conference we will share and discuss latest insights in design for well-being education, with a special focus on ethics. The event includes two inspiring keynote lectures, workshops on tools and methods to design for well-being, and practices related to ethical considerations regarding design for well-being. There is also still room for a number of 10-minute presentations in Pecha Kucha style.
