The Notre Dame-IBM Technology Ethics Lab is pleased to announce the selection of five Notre Dame graduate students for its Tech Ethics Graduate Fellowship program. After a competitive application and evaluation process, the students were selected based on their outstanding research proposals on topics such as fair methods of evaluating human labor in the digital age, the efficacy of privacy policies, and the role of technological advancement in violent conflicts.
