Ethics in Engineering: Seminar on 5 July in London

​On 5th July in London the IRSE is co-hosting a Seminar with the IEEE on the subject of "Ethics in Engineering", with a particular focus on transport. Our keynote speaker is Hon Mr Justice Haddon-Cave. 

We are living in an age when increasing automation means that ethical decisions are being incorporated into complex systems using algorithms and rules. We are having to think about how we want machines to behave in scenarios that engineers have not had to consider before. Nowhere is this more true than in the field of transport.
