The Biggest Issues in Digital Ethics

Tuesday, March 17
3:30PM - 4:30PM

JW Marriott
Salon 7
110 E 2nd St

The NSA tracking your cell phone, surveillance, privacy, big data, A.I., anonymity, Google Glass; which of these pose the biggest ethical issues, or is it something beyond this list? And why should you care?

Albert Einstein said “It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity.” Digital ethics helps us make sense of and make better decisions about technology.

In this discussion we will address privacy and managing your digital footprint, a new Code of Ethics for Social Data, and the biggest ethics issues facing companies and organizations that operate in the digital realm.
