Research Innovation Week 2019

Following the confirmation of COVID-19 cases within the State of Ohio (as of March 11, 2020), Governor DeWine’s declaration of a state of emergency, and in alignment with UC Leadership’s coordinated efforts related to coronavirus, the UC Office of Research Leadership team has chosen to forgo Research & Innovation Week this year.

 

The staff at the Office of Research appreciates all of the time, energy and effort our faculty, staff and others put into planning R&I Week events and we certainly do not want to lose the opportunity to host these amazing events in the future. Therefore, we will be working with all our R&I Week 2020 event organizers to host the event at R&I Week 2021: March 29-April 2, 2021. Event organizers may wish to hold their event before R&I Week 2021. If so, we will work them and within the guidelines of the UC Public Health Response Team.

 

Trust that the Office of Research understands that this change may cause great inconvenience for many and we are sincerely sorry. We will provide updates here on the R&I Week website, in Findings, and on our Facebook and Twitter pages as needed. Note: UC has created a dedicated Coronavirus Public Health page to keep everyone abreast of all that is happening at the University of Cincinnati.

ABOUT

R&I Week 2020 is a week-long celebration of disruptive ideasapplied solutions and the real-world impacts UC research, scholarship, and creative activities have on Cincinnati, the region, and beyond. The theme of R&I Week is “Digital Futures” … so what does that mean?!

#1: Digital Futures is a state-of-the-art research facility currently under construction at the MLK-71 interchange in Cincinnati’s emerging Innovation District. Target completion: Fall 2022. Get a sneak peak of the building here!

#2: Digital Futures is UC’s major, new research initiative under the Urban Futures Pathway that fosters imaginative, collaborative, and use-inspired research that advances technology and leverages it to drive diversity, equity and inclusion in the digital future and deliver applied, scalable solutions to society’s most pressing problems. Check out the DF teams here!

#3: Digital Futures is the theme of R&I Week 2020 because the UC Office of Research wanted to dedicate an entire week to socializing Digital Futures as a concept, unveiling our strategy and operational framework, and showcasing the innovative, inclusive and impactful work of the faculty, students and staff engaged with Digital Futures and Next Lives Here - Urban Futures Pathway writ large.

Surveillance of Students: An Ethical Travesty or Necessity?

Bryan Warnick, Ph.D.


Annie Laws (Teachers College, Room 407)



In this talk, I respond to the increasing use of surveillance cameras in public schools by examining the ethical questions raised by their use. I explore the extent of a student’s right to privacy in schools, stipulate how video surveillance is similar to and different from commonly accepted in-person surveillance practices, and discuss the possible impact of surveillance technology on educational environments. In response to the ethical concerns I raise, I offer five suggestions for how schools can use video surveillance technology in more ethically sensitive ways.

Professional Ethics and the Responsible Conduct of Research

Michael C. Loui, Ph.D.


Engineering Research Center, Room 427



I will identify similarities between the responsible conduct of research (RCR) and the ethics of a profession such as engineering. Just as codes of professional ethics define the standards for trustworthiness in professional practice, so too do the obligations of RCR set the standards for the trustworthiness of academic research. I will show short video vignettes to illustrate several RCR issues that occur in research activities across academic disciplines, such as plagiarism, mentoring, peer review, and data management.

Ethics: The Secret to Effective Leadership?

Andrew Cullison, Ph.D.


Lindner Hall 1220



In this talk, I argue that the secret to effective leadership rests in being good at a set of skills called "moral reasoning skills". In the first part, I highlight a specific set of skills that are the ideal learning outcomes that come from the study of ethics. I call these skills "moral reasoning skills". In the second part, I discuss several widely cited models of effective leadership and offer a unifying account of these apparently disparate theories. I show that many of the traits these theories identify as the secret to effective leadership either are one of these moral reasoning skills or could not be had without being good at one of these moral reasoning skills. In the third part, I provide an analysis of the empirical literature exploring the connections between moral reasoning and effective leadership which provides further confirmation that ethics really might be the secret ingredient to effective leadership.

Ethics in AI: A question of fairness

Lauren Rhue, Ph.D.


Lindner Hall 0050



Bias can emerge from artificial intelligence / machine learning (AI/ML) from many reasons (e.g., AI/ML learns historical bias, AI/ML learns from incomplete datasets). As organizations across a variety of new industries and areas implement AI/ML, it poses an ethical challenge. Organizations need to balance the ethical concerns of AI/ML fairness and anti-bias with the business benefits of AI/ML such as increased accuracy and profits. This presentation discusses evidence of AI bias in multiple contexts, some of the challenges in identifying AI bias, and some of the legal and societal implications of AI bias. Furthermore, I would discuss how algorithms exist within a decision-making framework and can/cannot induce bias in people.
