Software is developing rapidly on a global scale and impacting millions. As software developers, we have enormous power to shape the future world with technology but with this power comes great responsibility. During my presentation, I would like to talk about leadership in terms of everyday work, not a position you held. It’s really crucial to have a certain attitude when we code and think about how each and every line of code may impact people using your software.
During the presentation, I will show simple mistakes that may have a significant negative social impact such as training face recognition ML model with only Caucasian male photos or implementing super complicated UI resulting triggering Hawaii missile false alarm. Moreover I would like to share my way of keeping leadership mindset while working in a software consulting company.
As an outcome, I would like to inspire all people who work with software to look at our work with more global and social outlook and strive for excellence for better future.
