It has been said that technology is neither inherently good nor bad, but rather what’s important is how a person uses it. Digitization, machine learning and technological advancements could be used to promote economic prosperity but they could also contribute to growing economic disparities.

On Tuesday, May 28, the digital humanities program at UCLA and the Thomas Mann House will present “Moral Code – Ethics in the Digital Age.” The conference will feature a panel of experts who will discuss the moral implications that come from the use of digital technologies.

The event, which will be from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., will begin with a reception, followed by discussions involving human modification, artificial intelligence economy and ethical algorithms.

All are welcome to attend this free event in Royce Hall 314. To RSVP, please email rsvp@vatmh.org.
