Value sensitive design is a theoretically grounded approach to the design of technology that accounts for human values in a principled and systematic manner throughout the design process. It has been under active development and use since the 1990s, led by Professor Batya Friedman at the University of Washington, along with a wide range of other researchers. In this talk, I will first describe the value sensitive design theory and methodology, then present a set of illustrative applications of value sensitive design, followed by a discussion of some open problems and critiques. I'll conclude with some ideas on applying value sensitive design to the theme of the workshop -- rethinking the relationship between humans and computers -- and invite other workshop participants to help explore this topic.
