The Internet permeates our lives. We use it to access a vast storehouse of knowledge or to turn on our porch lights. It has given us new communications platforms and new ability to collect, store, and analyze information.
In the process, the Internet has raised a host of ethical dilemmas around privacy, the use of big data, the digital divide, the right to be forgotten, and many other topics. Athe the Ethics Center, we apply a framework of tested ethical approaches to issues arising from innovation. From our work with technology leaders, engineers, educators, and students on these issues, we have generated a set of articles, cases, and videos that offer practical approaches to Internet ethics.
