Plenary Panel P10 – Designing a Fine MES – Engineering Ethics in an Autonomous World

Modern Era Systems (MES), including AI, autonomous robotics, big data, blockchain, all embody sophisticated mechanisms to adapt their behavior to tune and optimize results.  As we develop ways to teach our students the core methods within these transformational technologies, how can we integrate and teach an ethical dimension in the design process to ensure that bleeding edge technologies actually contribute to the cause of engineering a more compassionate and peaceful world?
