NOVEMBER 16th-17th
Ethics & Technology Researcher | Delft University of Technology

Olya Kudina

Tech and tech ethics enthusiast, human rights activist, AI aficionada and now a postdoctoral researcher in the philosophy of tech.

Olya Kudina (Ukraine) works in the ethics of technology to help ensure an informed design and use of technologies. 

She received her PhD degree in Philosophy of Technology at the University of Twente (2019) on a project “Mediated Morality: Google Glass, Sex Selection, and the complex interactions between ethics and technology.”

She continues to examine the interrelation of values and technologies as a postdoctoral researcher at Delft University of Technology (the Netherlands), looking into how technologies induce value change. 



AI-powered technologies, such as voice assistants in the household domain, change the norms and values of people.

In her research, Olya combines empirical explorations and philosophical analysis, which prompts her interest in digital ethnography. In general, Olya’s research interests span across the fields of ethics of emerging technologies, (post)phenomenology, hermeneutics, bioethics, and design.

Come to #TEDxBucharest11 and find out more about how technologies co-shape human values or just get inspired by this renaissance woman.
