Issues addressed are: ethical theory (the foundations for reasoning about ethical issues), key issues relevant for developing new technologies and innovations including privacy, paternalism, the ontology of design, and factors relevant for user well-being. Throughout the module we will consider case studies and theory in ethics and technology to explore and critically assess the relationship of innovation and entrepreneurship to the larger well-being of society as a whole.|
