@PreetBharara @AnandWrites @RepBrianFitz @CourierTimes @TheIntellNews @BrianFitzUSA This is not the 1st illicit campaign donation rodeo for @RepBrianFitz (who, btw, is x-FBI supervisor PoliticalCorruptionUnit)-- there were also previous eyebrow-raising donations he accepted from high-profile felons like #AdamKidan & #ElliottBroidy

Two possibilities:

Someone is making up the story about #TreyGowdy declining a position as legal counsel for the President in a possible impeachment, or #TreyGowdy declined that position.
If #TreyGowdy did decline such representation, two possibilities as to how that fact became public. Either someone else made that information public, or #TreyGowdy made that information public.
If #TreyGowdy made that information public, two possibilities. Either the client (@realdonaldtrump) authorized the disclosure by Gowdy of his request for representation, or the disclosure was unauthorized.

Great discussion of reasons why the trolley problem is not the right discussion for #AI #ethics

"If we want to make ethical AI, we should be... training self-driving cars to work in ways that we, as a society, can approve of and endorse."

qz.com/1716107/ via @qz
Decisions for what an #AI system will do are determined long before they are in use.
If the people making the AI aren't ethical, how can we expect the system to be?
Ethical, diverse teams are need to develop ethical, safe AI systems.
Excited to talk about this topic, self-driving and AI ethics at #WorldUsabilityCongress in a few weeks in Austria!

1/20 #CDNpoli #Elxn43 #TrudeauBlackface/#Brownface

Here's the supporting docs to my podcast interview with @canadianglen

The ORIGINAL exposé by Mercedes Stephenson on Global News concealed Conservative Party as source of the racist video depicting PMJT

archive.is/hH1Q3
2/20 #CDNpoli #Elxn43 #TrudeauBlackface/#Brownface

That disingenuous story by Mercedes Stephenson was followed up by David Akin, also from Global News

That same afternoon, he told PMJT to step aside & quit the election so someone else could take over LPC
globalnews.ca/video/5925957/…
3/20 #CDNpoli #Elxn43 #TrudeauBlackface/#Brownface

Global News then dramatically edited its original story by Mercedes Stephenson, to finally admit they received the PMJT video from Conservative Party

But they concealed that significant edit too #Ethics

My 140 favorite quotes from The Ethics of Money Production (2008), by Jörg Guido Hülsmann
1. #Money is omnipresent in modern life, yet the production of money does not seem to warrant any moral assessment”. J.G.Hülsmann
2. “To be sure, central bank representatives are lecturing the public on the importance of business #ethics; but their concerns do not seem to apply to themselves”. J.G.Hülsmann

Prof Joel Lee, Chairman of the Singapore International Mediation Institute, will moderate MANE panel 4: "Towards a uniform mediation practice code".
Panellists: Mr Iu Ting-Kwok and Ms Ana Maria Maia Goncalves of ICFML (an IMI Qualifying Assessment Program)
Iu Ting-Kwok: "Do we need to do something more to strengthen the #SingaporeConvention, to make it work better?" Points to Art 5 items 1e and 1f. Tl;dr is that deficient mediator = decision not upheld. So how do we ensure that we use GOOD mediators? Answer = mediator standards.
ITK: What standards are applicable to the mediator/#mediation? Local standards? International standards?What is an objective test?
What are the mediator standards where settlement is cross-border? Do we need international mediator #standards? (IMI answers 'YES'.)

Today, I will try my hand at live tweeting insights from "A #Home of One's Own", a two-day #researchworkshop on socially & economically #marginalised women's experiences of and negotiations with #genderinequalities in #informalurbanhousing in India.
This workshop has been organised by #JadavpurUniversity (School of Women's Studies), #RabindraBharathiUniversity (Centre for Women's Studies) and #Parichiti, a women's organisation. All three are research partners on a #GCRF project funded by @GoldsmithsUoL.
Since Oct 2018, I have collaborated with Dr. Henrike Donner, who is leading it, to develop #researchcollaborations with #educational and #development organisations in India to implement a pilot study on #genderurbanhousing. This workshop marks the end of the first phase.

A layman's thread about #AI and #ethics.
This morning as I was driving in to work @BBCr4today discussed a framework for ethics in AI after the £150m Schwarzman donation to Oxford Uni for a new Institute on AI and Ethics. Whoever was speaking was asked for examples... 1/9
Example given: A self driving car bombing down the road and the brakes fail - should the car go ahead killing pedestrians in its path or swerve to avoid them and instead kill the driver (such as the occupant might be). 2/9
Seriously - how may automotive engineers groaned as the classic trolley problem was brought up as an example. I really hope they don't fritter £150m trying to 'solve' the trolley problem! But there we are - it got mentioned... 3/9

A fantastic thread on specific examples of breeding applicable interdisciplinarity.

In fact, I think we can go further, and designers can help.
There's a trend here.

In a lot of different environments, designers are realizing there's useful and powerful theories, insights, and communities from disciplines they never considered; and there happens to be a reactionary clash from the communities who live in that space.
We have an opportunity here.

Sometimes that clash is valuable, because it offers space for people to acknowledge, voice, and catalyze a community to make their knowledge known.

But sometimes, we can connect without friction, and towards a collective goal.

1/ "If doctors and nurses #clocked out when their paid #hours were finished, the effect on patients would be calamitous. Doctors and nurses know this, which is why they don’t shirk.

The system knows it, too, and takes advantage." @danielleofri nyti.ms/31ma6Qz
2/ "Increasingly, though, I’ve come to the uncomfortable realization that this #ethic that I hold so dear is being cynically #manipulated.

With mergers and streamlining, it has pushed the #productivity numbers about as far as they can go."
3/ "By now, corporate medicine has milked just about all the 'efficiency' it can out of the system."

I often think about this from an educator perspective too. My residents often say 'I just don't know how I can be any more #efficient" #MedEd

1/25 #CDNpoli

I was asked to comment on this video

By @RobertFife & @VassyKapelos on @PnPCBC

RE Jody Wilson-Raybould & the #SNCLavalin affair

But it was so problematic that it requires a #THREAD to address these troubling #CDNmedia & #ethics issues

2/25 #CDNpoli #CDNmedia #SNCLavalin

In chronological order:

The @PnPCBC interview (in post #1) begins with libeling @SenDuffy, by inferring he was guilty of breach of trust charges, when in fact he was exonerated & thoroughly vindicated by the court

cbc.ca/news/politics/…
3/25 #CDNpoli #CDNmedia #SNCLavalin

It's amazing that @VassyKapelos would spin the intro so dishonestly when @CBCNews covered @SenDuffy's exoneration - rebutting her own characterization to falsely boost @RobertFife's rep

Duffy's lawyer @BSB_Law will be disappointed, @ChuckTCBC

@thetimes @pressgazette @theguardian @PrivateEyeNews @jjohnjewell @sambrook @stevenjbarnett @ladaprice @docrussjackson @BrianCathcart There was another trans court case last week – one that is still ongoing – but it has yet to make any newspaper in England or Scotland. Which is strange because it involves possibly the most famous newspaper in the world.

1/9 #CDNpoli

It's been brought to my attention that a small handful of #NDP propagandists are attempting to discredit my #SNCLavalin - #IndigenousDirective timeline RE Jody Wilson-Raybould, Jane Philpott, PMJT, etc, to other #CDNmedia journalists
2/9 #CDNpoli

Please let it be known, without a shadow of a doubt

#NDP Leader, Jagmeet Singh, did in fact speak with the CEO of #SNCLavalin about a DPA

So did the NDP's MP for Sherbrooke, Québec, Pierre-Luc Dusseault

The record ► lobbycanada.gc.ca/app/secure/ocl…

And a screencap
3/9 #CDNpoli

It's disappointing the #NDP would add to #SNCLavalinScandal by attempting to mislead #CDNmedia & #Elxn43 voters

If they're interested to learn the facts, here is everyone #SNCLavalin lobbied for a deferred prosecution agreement (aka #DPA)

1/25 #THREAD On the #ethics of Jody Wilson-Raybould recording a convo with Michael Wernick RE #SNCLavalin

Read further to debunk the #CDNmedia & partisan spin + public's grasp of #CDNpoli #CDNlaw that's circulating social media

(Ex. of that mythology)
2/25 #SNCLavalin #CDNpoli #CDNlaw #Ethics

It's not possible for pundits & partisan actors to have their cake & eat it too

Due to the barrage of biased misinformation about Jody Wilson-Raybould's role as attorney general vs justice minister, it's necessary to explain the basics
3/25 If Jody Wilson-Raybould assumed the role of solicitor to the govt in this #SNCLavalin matter, it wouldn't be unethical to record her calls w clients & witnesses #CDNpoli

This is standard practice in #CDNlaw, so lawyers don't forget details & properly document billable hours

Perhaps the worst cover image for one of the worst books purporting to discuss #ethics and #bigdata.
“Big data technology has no value framework.” Bullshit. Big data is inherently techno-positivist, and largely enabled by infrastructures of surveillance lacking consent or respect for individual subjects.
I now need to write a book simply to respond to how fucking horrible this book is. @OReillyMedia, you really couldn’t find anyone better to tackle this topic?

This story illustrates the complexities of designing modern technology to augment human interaction. It's not enough that it works; potential use cases and their consequences must be considered, and guidelines established to avoid harm #techethics #ethics mercurynews.com/2019/03/08/fre…
Telemedicine is a challenging subject exposing many of the #ethics, social, and technology issues we're going to be facing in the near future.
The hospital my parents worked at explored telemedicine over video link in the mid-1990s. The problem they we're designing for was how to provide access to expert and specialist treatment in remote areas without having to physically ship a doctor, often by helicopter.
