Should parents post photos of their children on social media without their consent? If an algorithm assigns an employees workload, who is the employer? If companies use facial recognition to target customers, should they be seeking permission first? These are just some of the ethical dilemmas to be explored in a ground-breaking European project led by TU Dublin Computer Science.
Ethics4EU, funded by Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership, will develop new curricula, best practices and learning resources for digital ethics for computer science students. It has become a critical dimension to Computer Science graduate competencies. Given the types of intelligent systems with a societal impact that computer science students will increasingly develop, it is vital that graduates of programmes will become computer science professionals who consider the ethical dimension of their outputs in all aspects of their work lives.
