The Ethics of Innovation, Dark Patterns & Accessibility

Auditorium

All

Innovation brings on challenges. Most recently, developers are faced with moral dilemmas. Increasingly our code affects the emotional and sometimes physical well being of our users. This talk will explore the ethics of business, the moral tradeoffs we are being asked to compromise on, a review of Dark Patterns and how all of this affects People with Disabilities (“PwD”). We will end with some takeaways on how we can maintain our morals and take back the conversation.
