Today, many companies make money by monetizing data (the new ‘gold mine’). The dial-up telephone is a two-technology but it does not permit third party access without a wiretap and a warrant. Internet technology is also a two-way technology but it does permit easy third-party access. This workshop will introduce students to the problems that ethicists see in this technology and in data harvesting practices. The most serious issues have arisen in the past five years. We will compare the new ‘Contract for the Web’ (human rights document), the new California law that comes into force in January 2020, the Association of Computing Machinery Code of Ethics, and the current version the EU General Data Protection Regulations.

 

Dr. Burke teaches ethics and political philosophy at Ryerson University.
