New technologies are often implemented before their ethical consequences have been fully understood. In this volume, experts working in the sciences, arts, and philosophy of technology share novel perspectives on how we can best identify and navigate the new ethical crossroads emerging in our information society. With an eye toward the future, the contributors present an essential and unique view on the interplay between ethics and modern technology.
