Computer Ethics In Applied Contexts

John Weckert, Adam Henschke

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter

Abstract

Computer ethics changes the ethical landscape. Various issues that appear in different applied ethics fields now appear as part of computer ethics, for example monitoring and surveillance as part of business ethics, and the privacy of medical records as part of medical ethics. The purpose of technology, we will argue in the next section, is to improve life, so it is legitimate to question whether a particular technology, in this case information and communication technology (ICT), achieves this in a variety of contexts.
