Community

The OEC site is designed to engage and serve those who promote learning and advance the understanding of responsible research and practice in engineering and science. It recognizes the individuals and organizations that have provided guidance, reviewed submissions, contributed resources for the OEC (or related activities of the Center for Engineering Ethics and Society), and/or contributed to the goals of the site. Posted profiles can inform those interested in careers in ethics education in engineering and science and may suggest opportunities for collaboration and partnership. The OEC Community Feed announces events, developments, and new members and resources posted to the site. The Projects page provides information about current activities of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine that address ethics issues in science and engineering.

    Abstract submissions are invited for the Eleventh Symposium on Engineering and Liberal Education, which will be held at Union College in Schenectady, New York, on June 1-2, 2018. 

    Abstracts are invited on any topics that relate to how engineering integrates into a liberal arts education, and how liberal arts integrate into an engineering education. At this stage, the program committee has adopted two themes on “Social Justice/Responsibility” and “Art and Technology” and hopes your abstract can address one of these broad themes. The committee also welcomes your ideas and proposals for organizing sessions or workshops for this year’s symposium.

    Workshop – Brain-based and Artificial Intelligence: Socio-ethical Conversations in Computing and Neurotechnology

    May 10-11, 2018, Chicago, IL

    Organized by the Center for the Study of Ethics in the Professions, Illinois Institute of Technology

    This workshop seeks to explore the convergences and disparities in approaches to intelligence in neuroscience and computer science. It will reflect on how brain-based intelligence is similar to artificial intelligence and also how both can be combined in neurotechnology. Based on this, the workshop will explore the ethical and social implications that arise in AI and neurotechnology. We are using the term ‘brain-based’ intelligence to encompass both human and non-human animal intelligence. The workshop aims to advance an interdisciplinary discussion between scientists, practitioners, and scholars around these questions.

    Invited speakers:

    - Maria Gini, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, ...

    The following statement was released by the Presidents of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine on January 16, 2018:

    The highest standards of scientific integrity, transparency, and accountability are critical to maintaining public confidence in our nation’s research enterprise and in the wise use of the public investment in research. The public expects policymakers and agencies to base those investments on independent advice and assessment from unbiased experts without political interference. For these reasons, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine view any political review of scientific proposals as inappropriate, as it gives the appearance of political interference in science. At the same time, we recognize the prerogative of federal agencies to align funding programs with their mission priorities in their calls for proposals and in their requests that reviewers assess the relevance of proposals to agency priorities as one of ...
