Digital ethics deals with the impact of digital Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) on our societies and the environment at large. It covers a wide spectrum of societal impacts including issues such as data governance, privacy and personal data, Artificial Intelligence (AI), algorithmic decision-making and pervasive technologies. Our research report on European Values for Ethics in Digital Technology is presented in two parts:
- A literature review on pertinent digital ethics concerns and challenges for an increasingly interconnected ICT world. The list of key ethical concerns was created in consultation with the Good Technology Collective, a global council of ethics experts.
- The presentation of the results of focus groups conducted with three key groups of stakeholders – academics, industry specialists, and citizens – which captured their concerns with regards to ethics and ICT.
