What is Embedded Ethics?

Embedded Ethics is an initiative to embed an ethics-based curriculum into core undergraduate computing courses. By weaving discussions of ethics, policy, and professional responsibility throughout the computing curricula, the initiative addresses the responsibilities of designers and users of technology.

Conference Details:

The conference will offer broad discussions applicable to creating effective ethics education programs, covering the full life cycle of program creation, development, and implementation. Panelists from different universities will address how to get institutional buy-in to create a new ethics initiative and how to structure a successful program once you have, while instructors will present live teaching demonstrations, ethics curricula, and case studies.


Registration for an in-person ticket will open in January, 2023. The conference is by invitation-only as seats are limited due to capacity. If you are interested in Embedded Ethics and would like to request an invitation to attend, please contact HAI at stanford-hai [at] stanford.edu (stanford-hai[at]stanford[dot]edu) .
