If you have a question about this talk, please contact Andrew Carlotti. Mathematicians sit at the heart of technological advancement and industrial progress. Mathematics is a universal tool. It can be used for good, and it can be used for harm. To begin, we look at where harmful situations may arise, and what exactly we as mathematicians are doing to contribute to that harm. Though this harm may not (necessarily) come from intentional malice, there are many situations, and people, who can influence and manipulate us into carrying out harmful acts as mathematicians. It is important to be able to recognise and react to these scenarios, as we cannot always rely on external forces such as management to guide what we do. This talk is part of the C.U. Ethics in Mathematics Society (CUEiMS) series. ## This talk is included in these lists:- C.U. Ethics in Mathematics Society (CUEiMS)
