Duquenoy, Penny (2005)
Publisher: International Federation for Information Processing
Languages: English
Types: Part of book or chapter of book
This paper begins by drawing on early discussions concerning ethical aspects of computer technology and proceeds to use them to highlight different problem areas: technical, application, and environment. We then look at some of the major issues under discussion since these early writings, to show the scope of the problems, as well as their changing nature, as different technologies are introduced.\ud This background sets the scene for the discussions of moral responsibility, and moral choices referred to above. Some of the technologies that are on the horizon, are discussed showing some correspondence to concerns raised more than 20 years ago. \ud Finally, the moral points raised are brought together in a set of questions that could provide the basis of moral consideration when designing for the future.
