Venting views to provoke progress

The greatness of BCS is in the breadth of its membership and, while I cannot claim to have met all 70 odd thousand of you, those I have met have strong and interesting views. We want to get, and use, more of them.

The BCS Voices scheme is a way of hosting conversations (either virtually or in real life) with the aim of bringing the views expressed back into BCS to inform things like our policy responses - and especially to effect change around the four challenges - which I am sure you are well acquainted with: www.bcs.org/challenges.

Voices is in Beta at the moment - but you are welcome to log on and see how it is progressing, because conversations are already underway. As I write there are 6 conversation threads:

  1. Computing and ICT for all at examination level
  2. Workers vs. machines - will AI put you out of a job?
  3. Re-skilling staff is better than recruiting
  4. Giving up data is worth the reward
  5. How do we encourage computational thinking?
  6. Why is so little linked up in healthcare?

Any of those provoke feelings of impotent rage? Find some of them annoying? Irked by some of the underpinning assumptions? Anything else in the IT sphere where you see societal good being undermined?
