    Self-driving cars. Robots tending the homebound. Autonomous weapons. These are just a few examples of current and future systems that feature independence from human intervention. But how much autonomy is acceptable? And does autonomy dilute the foundational principle of a responsible agent? Join the conversation on 2 October (12-1PM Eastern, GMT -4) as IEEE TechEthics delves into important issues raised by an increasingly autonomous world.

    Algorithms are in use all around us, every day. Online shopping. Job applications. Real estate transactions. Search results. Public safety. Social media. Digital photo albums. You name it, there’s probably an algorithm involved with it somehow. But how do algorithms reinforce societal biases? And how can this be addressed? Join IEEE TechEthics on 30 May as Erin Ledell, Cathy O'Neil and Mathana Stender delve into this issue. Register for free at http://bit.ly/TechEthics-May2019
