About this talk

This webinar describes responsible computing, what it means, and its areas of concern. It explains what you can do to be more responsible, how to gain access to resources and leaders, and how to join one of the six domains found below. Responsible Computing gives you a deeper perspective on your impact and cost savings. Using expensive data recklessly could damage your reputation. Good policies on data retention and version control can efficiently help prepare you for stricter data regulations. Show employees and consumers that you are working towards a sustainable future with measurable progress. 1. Data Centers are cloud-based and are expensive. If you run one, you want it to be as efficient as possible. If you use one, you don’t want to use an irresponsible supplier. 2. Code choices are made for various reasons, most of them unconscious. Responsible Computing helps you make responsible choices that save devices’ power, i.e., batteries. 3. Infrastructure depends on whether you sell it or buy it. If you sell computers or network infrastructure, efficiency is vital. If you use one, you avoid using an irresponsible supplier. 4. Your computer eats up gigabytes of data that cost money to maintain, even when your computer is “off.” Data can be used unethically by training data sets that might be racially biased or misusing AI. 5. Systems can also be irresponsible. A system is an integrated set of technologies that provides a service to human beings via various factors. To be responsible, they must consider various outcomes. We want inclusive strategies that address bias & discrimination. This is all the more reason to be aware of responsible systems. 6. Using technology to change the world positively has a responsible impact. We are developing a self-assessment tool to help you measure responsible computing.
