1 ETHICS CPE CREDIT




SPEAKER BIO:

Dr. Aimee Kendall Roundtree is the Associate Dean of Research in the College of Liberal Arts and a Professor in the technical communication program at Texas State University. Her study of the intersection of ethics and facial recognition is grounded in her experience with the STEM fields of science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine. She researches and promotes the importance of developing policies and communication among experts, policymakers, organizations, and the public. She has worked as a communications specialist for the Texas Medical Foundation and as a public relations officer for Air Combat Command at Langley AFB.  Her current projects include research into emergency incident reporting and big data methodology for text mining. She recently received a grant to study ethical considerations for the use of facial recognition software and is particularly interested in applications in emergency response and at universities.  Dr. Roundtree earned her Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Austin.

 Program Title, Description, and Learning Objectives

This program will include a description of ethical issues associated with the implementation of facial recognition technology (in various settings), the likelihood of inaccurate results, and policy considerations for the use of such software.  The potential for inaccurate results merits serious concern as to how that could negatively impact a fraud investigation. The program will also include an informal dialogue about ethical concerns for you professionally and personally related to the use of facial recognition software.  Counts for 1 CPE hour of Ethics training  

Learning Objectives – After attending this program, participants should be able to:

  • Describe some of the uses of facial recognition software in fraud examination and the ethical implications arising from that use
  • Identify some of the potential shortcomings of facial recognition software
  • Explain the need for careful consideration of ethical issues related to the implementation of facial recognition software
  • Evaluate how the use of facial recognition software intersects with the ACFE Code of Ethics 

Prerequisite:  Not required, but suggested readings prior to the session provide multiple perspectives about the use of facial recognition technology (none of which are endorsed by the Austin chapter of the ACFE):
