Computerethics

Description: Moral concerns about technology are becoming more and more prevalent – be it in research, in business, or in industry. Computer Ethics introduces you to basic techniques for recognizing the most pressing moral questions, and for devising ways to arrive at a justified moral judgment. For that, you will be made familiar with moral theories from philosophy, as well as different Codes of Ethics for computer scientists. Since one can quickly get lost when talking about ethics and morals, it is especially important to talk and argue clearly and precisely. To prepare you for that, Computer Ethics shows you formal and informal ways of argumentation that go beyond the level of everyday discussions at bars and parties. In this course, you will take morally controversial topics from computer science into focus and will be introduced to the most important tools for coming to a justified stance on them.
