How systems thinking can create more ethical design

schedule Oct 16th 09:30 - 09:55 AM place Great Hall (200) people 13 Interested

The biggest problems we face as a society are systems problems. Systems thinking gives us not only the tools to zoom out and see these in their full, dynamic complexity, but to understand where we can most effectively intervene to make a difference.

But systems thinking can give us more than that. It can also give us powerful signals about whether our interventions will be ethical, and how we can overlay concepts like compassion, social license and fairness into the loops and the nodes. In the wake of two Royal Commissions and on wavefront of a third, Darren will discuss systems failures, their human cost, and how systems thinking can inoculate our designs from becoming, ultimately, harms.
