Yahoo! Seminar Series: Batya Friedman
The Shape of Being: Technology Design, Human Values, and the Future
In this talk, Dr. Batya Friedman will explore the question of how to design information and computing technology to be sensitive to human values and concerns. She will draw from over two decades of design work and theory development, touching on issues of medical device security, privacy in publics, and international justice.
Dr. Friedman pioneered value sensitive design (VSD), an approach to account for human values in the design of information systems. First developed in human-computer interaction, VSD has since been used in information management, human-robotic interaction, computer security, civil engineering, applied philosophy, and land use and transportation.
A reception will follow the talk.
