Am 12. April beginnt die Veranstaltung "Engineering Ethics" im Rahmen des Begleitstudiums SuK. Diese findet montags von 12.30 bis 14.00 Uhr in englischer Sprache statt. Für interessierte Promovierende und Studierende der h_da und der EUt+ steht die Veranstaltung offen teilzunehmen. Bei Interesse einfach kurze Mail an email@example.com.
Thema der Veranstaltung ist:
Engineers design the technical hardware in which we humans live. Computer scientists develop the software. Together, hard- and software largely determine how everyday life will be organized for each individual or society as a whole in the future. Technological developments do not always run in a direction that can be seen as unambiguously and exclusively positive. The diesel scandal is an extreme example of this. How should we decide when there is a trade-off between turnover and responsibility? For example, computer games are given to juvenile players for little money, but the games contain a variety of (inside) payment options to improve the players' chances of success. Furthermore, there is a potential for addiction built into the game. Is that ethical programming or product design? Who is responsible? How to take responsibility?
