Computing & Society @ Stanford

Who are we?

Computing & Society is an interdisciplinary group of Stanford students dedicated to bringing more discussions about the ethical and societal implications of computing and computer science research to the Stanford community. We are graduate students and post doctoral fellows in Computer Science, Cyber Policy, Biomedical Informatics and Management Science and Engineering at Stanford University.

Speaker Series. During fall quarter 2022, we have a lineup of amazing speakers from many different disciplines, including computer science, philosophy, and psychology, who will be sharing about their work and its ethical and societal implications at our weekly meetings. The meetings will feature a 30-45 minute presentation by the speaker, with time for discussion and questions at the end.
