Emitzá Guzmán (VU): The Best Ends by the Best Means: Bringing Ethics into Software

Computer software is full of ethical problems. It manipulates voters, discriminates by people’s gender, race or social standing, raises enormous privacy problems and is often designed to be highly addictive. Very slowly, Parliaments and Congresses around the world are catching up with the tech industry that’s affecting billions of users every year. This project uses training data that consists of opinions of thousands of diverse users, developers and policymakers. By instrumentalizing the opinions of the people and training AI models to detect ethical issues, the ultimate goal is to help make software companies accountable for the ethical breaches within their software.
