- Technology Ethics: Introducing The New ACM (Association For Computing Machinery) Code Of Ethics -
by Dr Catherine Flick

In this talk, Catherine will introduce the work she has been doing recently on updating the ACM’s code of ethics and professional practice. She will discuss the development of the new Code, and particularly some of the new equality and diversity aspects, show some of the challenges and opportunities it presented, and will walk through some examples of how to use and interpret the Code in everyday professional practice. Finally, she will be happy to talk about any ethical dilemmas the audience brings along, using the Code as a basis for discussion.
