Technology design is a social and cultural practice (as well as a technical one). Thus, helping technologists design ethical systems requires more than creating technical ethical design tools; it also requires creating social and cultural infrastructures that can help support technologists to make ethical decisions.
Led by Professor Richmond Wong, our lab works to imagine and create these new infrastructures, which may include: new organizational practices, law and policy, supporting worker and community-led actions, or developing design tools that consider the social and organizational contexts where technologies are developed. We draw on perspectives from design, science & technology studies (STS), critically-oriented human-computer interaction (HCI), and computer supported cooperative work (CSCW). We are housed in the Digital Media program in Georgia Tech's School of Literature, Media, and Communication.
