    NJSLA September Technology Event

    The New Jersey Chapter of SLA presents:

    "Artificial Intelligence and Ethics"

    Speaker: John C. Havens


    John C. Havens is Executive Director of The IEEE Global Initiative on Ethics of Autonomous and Intelligent Systems. He is tasked with coming up with new models that put human well-being at the forefront. That means empowering designers of AI/AS systems with the training and tools they need to prioritize ethical considerations in their work, and coming up with new ways to measure success that don't put profits and output ahead of people and planet.

    John is also a contributor on issues of technology and well-being to Mashable and The Guardian and is author of the books, Heartificial Intelligence: Embracing Our Humanity To Maximize Machines and Hacking Happiness: Why Your Personal Data Counts and How Tracking it Can Change the World.
