Today, computer scientists wield tremendous power. When that power isn’t coupled with responsibility, the results can have unintended consequences, negatively impacting users’ privacy, security, or wellbeing.
The hope is that the Challenge will unearth and spark innovative coursework that will not only be implemented at the participating home institutions, but also be scaled to additional colleges and universities across the country — and beyond.
Between December 2018 and July 2020, we will award up to $3.5 million in prizes to promising approaches to embedding ethics into undergraduate computer science education, empowering graduating engineers to drive a culture shift in the tech industry and build a healthier internet.
Challenge submissions will be judged by a panel of experts from academic, nonprofit, and for-profit organizations working in the fields of computer science, ethics, technology, and other experts from related domain areas.
