Ethics and technology go hand in hand? Around this question took place last year the first edition of the #èTIC Day. The second edition will take place on Monday 17 October, at Antiga Fàbrica Damm (C/ Rosselló, 515, Barcelona). It will be a meeting in the afternoon, between 17:15 and 19:30, focusing on "the ethical factor in the evolution of the Internet."
Any technology continues logics and responds to requests that do not necessarily prioritize ethical criteria. The final consequences of these new technologies could be contrary to the welfare and improvement of the quality of life of people. Internet, in this sense, was no exception and is in a continuous evolution. Reflection and analysis can not always go hand in hand with this speed and is therefore necessary to share spaces that allow us to know whether the benefits of these advances outweigh the potential negative impacts they produce. The #èTIC Day will focus on all these consequences.
It be a meeting to hear different references on the subject and to discuss the evolving who are living ethically and technology. If you want to attend to this meeting you can register following this link.
