The possibility of interconnecting any kind of device to the Internet is driving the adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm also in a city environment. Many IoT applications are making the Smart City concept real, offering advanced services to citizens and city administrators. This evolution relies upon a seamless exchange of information among different systems. Exchanged data includes personal and/or critical information, thus requiring proper handling in order to avoid security and privacy issues. At the same time, recent developments in robotics are fostering the realization of autonomous agents (e.g., cars, buses, drones) that do not require human intervention. In the city of the future, many services will rely on autonomous agents. Also, autonomous agents (e.g., robots) will become more human alike, and will be able to show emotions. Therefore, they will replace humans in many city activities. In this paper, we first overview the expected evolution of IoT applications and, then, we briefly analyze the security, social, and ethical issues that are foreseen in a Smart City context.
At Towson University, the Computer and Information Sciences Department is preparing newer faculty members to teach courses in computer ethics. There are two separate ethics courses, which are identified as Professionalism and Computer Ethics (a 1 credit course) and Social and Ethical Issues (a 3 credit course). This paper will provide several types of resources available for preparing a new faculty member to teach computer ethics. In addition, this paper will cover the following topics from the new faculty perspective: (1) identifying available resources; (2) which ethical theories to implement in an ethics course; (3) the major topics to be covered; (4) identifying the desired student outcomes; and (5) the students' perception of the course content.
The Electrical Engineering program of the University of Karlsruhe (Germany) entered the ABET evaluation procedure for advanced-level programs in 1999. The Pre-Visit was held in May 1999, the ABET Main Visit took place in December 2000. The Karlsruhe EE program is the first engineering program outside the US which is evaluated according to the new criteria EC2000. The results are supposed to demonstrate the substantial equivalency with accredited US engineering programs. In Germany, accreditation of engineering programs is only ascending, because ever since University programs and their curricular principles have been harmonized by federal-state laws and regulations. Quality management was simply implied, because of the strong normative regulations. Recently, accreditation and Total Quality Management have become the buzzwords in Germany because of the need for objective criteria in the comparison of German programs with international engineering education. Emphasis will be on social and ethical issues in engineering programs and their implementation in engineering education. Moreover, the adequacy of these criteria with respect to the issues is debated and the need for teaching of knowledge management as a meta-science within engineering is addressed. Technological hermeneutics, i.e. the philosophical fundamentals of technology design is regarded as an essential in engineering education. Finally, the need for a new professional image of the engineer within modern industries in the global environment is discussed. Since ABET EC2000 is designed for American education programs, its applicability to German engineering programs and its impact on curriculum is discussed in detail.
The new ABET EC2000 accreditation guidelines call for greater emphasis on social and ethical issues in the education of engineering students. Universities are responding in varied ways - generally through increased liberal arts content and, in a few instances, through design activities, but generally, design education focuses primarily on the technical and process aspects. This is especially true in the new first-year engineering design courses that have evolved in the 1990s. A first-year "Introduction to Engineering Design" course has been developed at the University of Dayton that seeks to achieve a balance between technical, social and ethical issues throughout the design process to help ground the education of engineering students with the ideals of social and ethical responsibility as part of their profession. This grounding has been achieved through interdisciplinary projects, which teach students, through self-discovery, the relevance of social, environmental, cultural, political and ethical factors to their normal engineering functions.
In the aftermath of 9-11, the area of biometrics has taken on increased importance. There is a need for more graduates who are familiar with the principles of biometric technology, and with the social and ethical issues raised by use of this technology. This paper describes a course that covers the fundamentals of the major biometric technologies, as well as privacy and security concerns. Experience from teaching a first section of this course is discussed. Modules from this course could also be used in a more general social impact of computing course, or could be used in a pattern recognition or artificial intelligence course to introduce social and ethical issues.
It is widely agreed that there are profound implications for organizations and societies from artificial intelligence. I've already discussed some of the employment issues that may arise from advances in AI. In addition to those, many observers have begun to comment on the various social and ethical issues that may come to the fore as AI becomes more intelligent and more widely adopted.
Many students experience difficulty making the transition from a traditional CS I course that consists primarily of learning to program in a high-level language to the higher level of abstraction required in the CS II course. Students also come to the discipline with a lack of understanding of the scope of computer science. A foundations of computer science course as the second course in introductory sequence of three 3-hour courses that essentially covers the material proposed by the breadth-first approach from computing curriculum 2001, incorporates additional programming experience to enhance the skills developed in CS I, introduces the discrete mathematics needed early in the curriculum, and introduces students to social and ethical issues addresses these concerns. The more traditional programming-first approach to CS I is retained as the first course. The paper will present the curriculum in our foundations course and review the problems and success we have had with this model.
The computing profession has had many great successes, but there have been many great blunders. Blunders arise from a failure of imagination, from an inability to see beyond the immediate problem to its full social or professional context. If professionals acquire an education in and remain sensitive to social and ethical issues, they will commit fewer blunders and recover more swiftly from them. The seven great blunders of the computing world, according to the author, relate to: (1) terminology ("data" vs. "information"), (2) the computer (keyboard layouts), (3) the processor (integer and floating-point arithmetic), (4) commercial programming (COBOL), (5) scientific programming (FORTRAN and Algol), (6) text encoding (Unicode), and (7) numeric encoding (symbols and digit ordering). The seven blunders offered provide a mix that is ancient and modern, retrievable and irretrievable, general and particular, subtle and blatant, and arguable and undeniable.
Risk assessment is based on scientific information that is often highly uncertain and speculative. Scientific representation of probability has suffered a serious loss of credibility. The acceptability of any given risk can change based on new information or on the interdependence of one risky activity on another. Risk acceptability must be determined not only one on the basis of technological expertise and statistical validity, but also in consideration of such social and ethical issues as the protection of individual rights, the equity of risk-to-benefit distribution, the legitimacy of risk assessment and risk management processes, and most importantly awareness for and respect of the public's perception of risk.
This paper presents a rationale, course objectives, and sample exercises for a newly developed general education class that is encouraged especially for engineering and technology students. The class was developed in response to a need to engage students with social and ethical issues related to their disciplines, as well as to empower them as critical thinkers who will be actively involved in democratic decision-making about technical issues. The class has two primary objectives: First, students are provided the opportunity to reflect critically on the merits and drawbacks of technology in their lives and across broad social contexts. Second, to promote life-long learning commitment and skills, the class also focuses on self-assessment of personal learning styles and understanding how new technology information and skills are acquired.
