[New] Normal Technology Ethics: Moving technology ethics at the forefront of Society, Organisations and Governments
Uncertainty is reaching new heights in our current Society. The digital transformation is accelerating even more due to the pandemic, penetrating into the “digital DNA” of individuals and organisations. For example, using AI to predict the pandemic, tracking systems to manage the spread of the virus, the use of eCommerce to avoid risky personal contacts, videoconferencing to keep family and friend relationships, eLearning to ensure safety when teaching and learning at all levels, teleworking from home, and the key role of digital technologies in the emerging Green New Deal. All of these digital technologies are operating at the core of societal challenges nowadays. A key question is whether ICT ethical concerns are at the forefront of the transformational agenda of the new normal? At ETHICOMP 2021, we discuss with scholarship and professionals that addresses technological ethical concerns that should be included in the transformational agenda of Society, Organisations and Governments.
