IA Summit 2018 Main Conference TalkTopic(s): communication, ethics, and personal development
That we ought to do work that is ethical and serves the good of humanity is hardly controversial, yet it can be hard to get past that assertion and onto strategies for what we should do to make it so.
This talk will start with the assumption that we all want to make things that are good, and offer a plan for helping us do so. Research shows that several imperfect, but diverse, heuristics can lead to better solutions than one well thought out one, so instead of advocating for a single framework for measuring goodness, I’ll teach you how to make your own.
Learn how to map your personal ontology and create an ethical statement then learn how to use them to advocate for the things you think are good.
