NCompass Live: Ethics Behind Emerging Technology - Recorded Online Session 

Description

In the presentation on February 13, I covered what emerging technology is and how it relates to libraries. Now it’s time to dive into what that means on a larger scale. What makes technology good or bad? Who is really qualified to make that determination? Anyone who tracks emerging technology will start to think about how this technology will affect the future of our communities and the world. What will make a piece of technology influential and powerful in the world? Tune in if you want to learn more about the following topics:

  • Which ethics matter most in technology?
  • What makes technology good or bad?
  • What potential dangers should we be aware of with new technology?
  • What factors might affect society in the long-run?
There are no easy answers to any of these questions. The concept of ‘ethics’ tends to be a gray area for many, and understandably so. This presentation won’t give you a finite right or wrong stance on all technology. But it will provide you with the tools to make the decision for yourself.

Presenter: Amanda Sweet, Technology Innovation Librarian, Nebraska Library Commission.
