Ethics and technology is the topic of discussion at the next Brattleboro Area Tech meeting to be held on Thursday, June 14 at 6:00 pm in the Hooker Dunham Building at 139 Main Street in Brattleboro. The discussion will be led by Karina Assiter, a professor of computer science at Landmark College.


The evening, which will begin with a reception in Suite 603, is being hosted by Peak Coworking, Brattleboro’s new coworking space (www.peakcoworking.com).


The meeting is open to the public and will include a discussion of some of the big issues surrounding ethics in the IT field. The presentation will include videos and case studies to generate discussion.
Among the topics to be discussed will be:
• Automation and its expected impact on workers (such as large-scale automation of the transportation industry).
• Robots providing human/social services (think elder-care, child care, therapist).
• Automated decision-making based on data that may be biased or on deduced from information that may otherwise be private (such as mental health records or pregnancy).
