Human Impact Assessment: A new system for responsible design and engineering

The convergence of artificial intelligence, robotics, 3-D printing, and Big Data is heralding what many call the 4th Industrial Revolution. These changes will ultimately impact humans, meaning that it is no longer tenable for engineers to develop products and technology without a systematic way to consciously address the matters of wellbeing, justice and ethics. But making such a dramatic shift to the engineering profession will not be easy. Professor Rafael Calvo will present his views on how future engineers need to reassess the way they measure the impact they have on societies and individuals.
