The potential ick factor: Ethical considerations for designing in healthcare

What do we designers, strategists, and thinkers think about putting some of the most vulnerable moments of human experience (going to the hospital, getting an X-ray, etc.) in the hands of a computer? In a world of increasingly more powerful technology, designers need to consider not just how technology can help but also how it might harm—and how to prevent this from happening.

This multidisciplinary roundtable opens a dialogue on how bioethical principles might be applied to everyday design practice within healthcare. Join in to lend your voice to the discussion.

Topics include:

  • Psychotherapy, chatbots, and AI
  • AI and cognitive bias
  • Clinical decision making and AI
  • Adapting existing design tools to enable ethical thinking in everyday design practice
