The International Review of Information Ethics (IRIE) is proud to release its 28th Edition hosted on the new platform! The first issue on our new platform is on Artificial Intelligence, Ethics and Society. We bring together a set of papers that were presented at a conference with this title hosted by the Kule Institute for Advanced Study (KIAS) that has made AI, Ethics and Society an area of research focus. The conference was held in May of 2019. Details can be found on the KIAS website.
This edition considers themes from ethical best practices for industry and government developing responsible AI services to aligning cultural and societal values in AI design, the role of researchers from social sciences and humanities disciplines in ethical innovation in the AI sector, and methods for interdisciplinary and intersectoral collaboration between interested in responsible AI. It looks at how nations can contribute to building a healthy AI sector through policy, research and innovation.
IRIE has pioneered ethics in technology and information studies for almost two decades. Leading on topics ranging from gaming to artificial intelligence, IRIE has ventured some of the most thought-provoking conversations of the digital age. As we learn to deal with Covid-19, our global information societies are set to face several new information and technology challenges, where leadership in information ethics will become more critical than ever. IRIE promises to carry forward the academic tradition of addressing the ethics of new challenges started by Dr. Rafael Capurro, founder of IRIE.
As we deal with the pandemic, the editors of IRIE are proud to announce that in March 2020, IRIE successfully re-launched at the University of Alberta, Canada, where it will be hosted by KIAS. The journal is now hosted on the robust open publishing infrastructure of the University of Alberta and has undergone a new design. It has also adopted a new editorial advisory board and managing editors. The re-launch of the journal accompanies the relaunch of the International Center for Information Ethics (ICIE), also now supported by the University of Alberta.
The new IRIE Managing Editors team reflects a balance of expertise that both carries forward the original vision of the journal and its founders while also aligning to the academic vision of KIAS and benefiting from the University of Alberta Open Journal System. As such, IRIE is happy to introduce the following team members: Jared Bielby (Editor-in-Chief) Rachel Fischer (Deputy Editor), Mihaela Ilovan (Project Manager and Librarian), and Geoffrey Rockwell, Professor of Philosophy and Digital Humanities, joins IRIE as Assistant Editor.
We invite you to read the journal on the official website of the International Review of Information Ethics.
