How IEEE is Leading the Way on Ethical Machine Design

by Guest Contributor| Mon, 14 Aug 2017

Everyday we interact with tens, if not hundreds, of machines.  Machines wake us, make our coffee, entertain us, get us to work and back, and lull us to sleep. We count on machines to bring value to our lives, but how confident should we be in the values instilled in the machines we value the

At the Intersection of Technology and Ethics

by Beyond Standards| Fri, 11 Aug 2017

Unless we radically shift our technology base, we cannot sustain people with the quality of life that we have in the developed world … if they all have this resource footprint. That’s just a matter of simple mathematics. An IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) Board of Governors Forum in Dublin, Ireland, on 17 May 2017 convened

Advancing Technology For the Benefit of Humanity – A Closer Look at LVDC

by Beyond Standards| Thu, 03 Aug 2017

The availability of electric power and its ability to drive economic productivity is a long-established characteristic of developed nations. Access to electricity, however, is far from universal. According to the International Energy Agency’s World Outlook 2016, 1.186 billion people around the world lack electricity and its benefits. About one-sixth of the world’s population, particularly in
