Practical Ethics for Computing Scientists

  • Number of credits 6 credits

About the course

The course is aimed at professionals and students in computing science.

The course teaches the basics of practical ethics in the context of computing science. Computing scientists and software developers play a fundamental role in the 4th industrial revolution, as they enable connectivity, smart automation, artificial intelligence, robotics, etc. However, the design and deployment of software systems poses ethical risks that require ethically responsible actions to mitigate. Professionals must therefore be trained in identifying potential ethical risks and in planning how to mitigate them. The course is intended to be followed in parallel with either other courses in Computing Science or daily work in the IT industry. The assignments are meant to be personalized to each student's study/work context.
