Current Issue – September 2019

Technology, Ethics, and Policy

This is a special issue related to and inspired by IEEE-SSIT’s 2018 International Symposium on Technology and Society, held in Washington, DC, U.S.A., November 13-14, 2018, on Technology, Ethics, and Policy. The ISTAS series of conferences poses potentially awkward questions that need to be addressed by designers, developers, regulators, and citizens, in the creation and adoption of technological innovation. Where does it come from, and does it fulfill a social need or satisfy a human value? In solving problems does it create a new and possibly worse problem?
