Ethics of Digital Transformation

Big data, privacy breaches, artificial intelligence, social license... the world of digital transformation can feel like a minefield. This one-day course will give you a powerful briefing and hands-on insight into the high-profile, ethical challenges facing governments as they progress their digital transformations.


What you will learn:

  • Important ethical concepts and paradigms for government digital transformations, and how to apply them

  • Ethical danger-zones in a digitally transformed world, including interactive case studies of where ethical blind-spots have resulted in governance failures
  • Social licence: what it is, and its implications for how you design programs, services and regulation
  • Algorithms, artificial intelligence, and how to navigating challenges like unintended bias and right to explanation, to deliver public good
  • Big data, little data, privacy, and the ‘ethics of knowing’
  • Dark strategies: the trust gap, how bad actors and bad design have widened it, and what it means for government
  • Case studies and compelling stories of how other countries are tackling these challenges right now
  • Regulating the internet of things in bodies, cities and beyond
  • A framework for assessing the ethics of digital transformation initiatives (including a hands-on intensive where you get to use it on a realistic challenge)
