Editors: Spyros G. Tzafestas (School of Electrical and Computer Engineering National Technical University of Athens, Zografou, Athens, Greece)
Book Description:
Information, communication and automation technology (ICAT) ethics is the branch of applied ethics and technoethics which investigates the social and ethical issues of the integrated multidisciplinary ICAT field in the broad sense that includes all kinds of automated systems through the use of ICT and computer based systems (autonomous control systems, communication systems, software agents, robotic systems, etc.)
This book involves 11 timely contributed chapters that cover a wide spectrum of topics in the ICAT ethics field. These topics include fundamental ethics concepts, ICAT ontology and history, ethics in storytelling for business intelligence, AI and human potential, ethics and social impact of automation, ICAT professional ethics and codes of ethics, ethics of IoT, human-AI moral gap, scientific and ethical problems of computer-model based mischaracterization of serious human threats as low risk situations, social and existential issues of dynamic modernity in ICAT, and role of technoethics for the fulfillment of humankind perfection.
The study of ICAT ethics will help scientists and engineers to see why and how to avoid computer, communication, and automation technology abuse, and will make them behave as ethically responsible professionals. ICAT ethical perspectives are permanently in transition as technological advances move to novel unseen ICAT areas. ICAT ethics attempts to reveal the ethical dimensions of ICAT systems, and proposes proper ethical rules and principles based on traditional and modern ethical theories, that guide novel advancements towards moral/ethical practices that benefit the society.
The book provides a rich source of information that can be profitably used by graduate students and researchers on ICAT moral philosophy, ethics, and social impact in our digital era. (Nova)
