Ethically Aligned Design for Parents in the Algorithmic Age

20th February 2020 @ 8:30 am - 1:00 pm

The DQ Institute, IEEE Standards Association, IEEE Global Initiative on Ethics of Autonomous and Intelligent Systems (A/IS) Ethically Aligned Design (EAD) for Parents Committee and Goleman EI, in association with the World Economic Forum is pleased to invite you to join us on Thursday, February 20 for “DQ Seminar: Ethically Aligned Design for Parents in the Algorithmic Age”. The conversation will consider more holistic, integrated and responsible uses of technology at the intersection of parenting and education in the AI world.

The IEEE Ethically Aligned Design for Parents Committee is creating a series of guides on Demystifying AI in the Algorithmic Age for Parents and Caregivers. The committee’s first paper currently in development outlines three elements that call for the cultivation of Emotional Intelligence in youth.  These are:

  1. Formation of identities and values without constant digital interference
  2. Cultivation of capacities for creativity, empathy and ethics
  3. Development of personal agency at school and in life

This event includes a special workshop conducted by Goleman EI for “The Ethical Imperative in the Age of AI: Building Emotional Intelligence for Agency and Empathy”. The 2.5 hour workshop seeks to help parents and educators to recognize their own agency and how to cultivate empathy through listening and connection. It will also explore the application of Social-Emotional Intelligence (SEL) on identity so they may support their children in doing the same.

Time:                   8:30am – 1:00pm

Location:            World Economic Forum
