How to build responsibility into product development: Consequence Scanning workshop
Consequence Scanning is a new agile practice that helps organisations consider the potential consequences of their product or service on people, communities and the planet. The technique helps product teams understand how best to mitigate or address potential harms before they happen, and ensure that the products or services they’re creating are aligned with their organisation’s values and culture. In this unmissable workshop learn about: the Consequence Scanning technique, and how it could be applied to your own work; take part in a practical exercise to test the technique; discuss the applicability of the technique to the development of online safety technologies.
Safety Tech 2021: Unleashing the Potential for a Safer Internet
One in five people have stopped engaging with a website or online community because of harassment or abuse. But while many companies are trying to put measures in place to safeguard their online communities, the resulting impact is that human moderators are becoming overwhelmed by the emotional and psychological toll of dealing with the internet’s dark underbelly. CogX is proud to be hosting the world’s first safety tech conference, curated by Department of Digital, Culture, Media, and Sport (DCMS) and, Department for International Trade (DIT).
