Wspólnie obejrzymy ten ważny referat i będziemy o nim dyskutować.

Abstract: Many of us got involved in computing because programming was fun. The advantages of computing seemed intuitive to us. We truly believed that computing yields tremendous societal benefits; for example, the life-saving potential of driverless cars is enormous! Recently, however, computer scientists realized that computing is not a game--it is real--and it brings with it not only societal benefits, but also significant societal costs, such as labor polarization, disinformation, and smart-phone addiction. A common reaction to this crisis is to label it as an "ethics crisis." But corporations are driven by profits, not ethics, and machines are just machines. Only people can be expected to act ethically. In this talk the speaker discussed how computer scientists should behave ethically. This lecture was part of VardiFest22: On The Not So Unusual Effectiveness of Logic, a workshop held in honor of Moshe Y. Vardi. Dr. Vardi's lecture and VardiFest22 were part of FLoC 2022, the Federated Logic Conference at the Technion Israel Institute of Technology. Bio: Moshe Y. Vardi is a University Professor and the George Distinguished Service Professor in Computational Engineering at Rice University. He is the recipient of three IBM Outstanding Innovation Awards, the ACM SIGACT Goedel Prize, the ACM Kanellakis Award, the ACM SIGMOD Codd Award, the Blaise Pascal Medal, the IEEE Computer Society Goode Award, the EATCS Distinguished Achievements Award, the Southeastern Universities Research Association's Distinguished Scientist Award, the ACM SIGLOG Church Award, the Knuth Prize, the ACM Allen Newell Award, and IEEE Norbert Wiener Award for Social and Professional Responsibility. He holds seven honorary doctorates.
