Digital ethics


In the innovative climate of continuous experimentation in which we are involved, development should be regulated not only by technical-scientific disciplines but also by humanistic ones such as education, psychology, anthropology and philosophy in order to train scientists to program machines that respect a moral. Ethical education for programmers and suppliers of technological aids is as important as the concept of digital citizenship for its conscious use throughout the life span. This essay aims to emphasize the importance of an ethical training inspired by democratic principles in order to recognize and accept the responsibilities of the entire process of technological innovation: design, distribution and use. By taking up the cultural heritage of the past applied to the innovations of the present, this new era of development could illuminate the dark scenario of black boxes also made of uncertainty and surveillance.
