Ethical Computing is a blog that focuses on the ethical management and use of information by organizations. Governmental agencies, business enterprises, and non-profits/NGOs depend upon the collection, creation, use, processing, analysis and dissemination of information. Statutes and regulations govern the use of some of this information, in certain contexts, by certain entities. But this legal framework is fragmentary, confusing, and incomplete. Organizations wishing to manage their information ethically need to go beyond the legal minimum. They need to develop policies that respect the rights and legitimate interests of their stakeholder groups. As emerging technologies such as AI pose new challenges, a comprehensive, systematic approach to data ethics will be required.
