A discussion-based course on the ethical principles we need to affirm as digital systems become more and more important in our lives.

As driverless cars, massive databases of personal information, and online health, education and government services become a normal part of life, big philosophical questions are re-emerging as vitally important.

Should driverless cars have a higher duty to protect the safety of their passengers than others? Is it OK to act on data insights that tell us which customers or which friends well gain more from, while ignoring others? Should the material and social gains from digital systems be shared across the population broadly, or cluster as reward for the people who make these systems operate? Well address these questions and more, through short readings in classical philosophy and current social journalism, and discussion across the table.

Note: Each course is free and open to the public, and not all are interrelated or cumulative. If you would like to attend all courses, you must RSVP for each separately. Signing up for one does not sign you up for all. We welcome any and all perspectives to the discussion!
