Junior Professor for Ethics of Digital Methods and Technologies

 

USB-BuchThe research efforts at the Chair for Ethics of Digital Methods and Technologies (EDMT) address socio-political questions of technological change. From a perspective of social ethics, the ever extending use of digital technologies raises particular challenges. The goal of the reaseach at the Chair for EDMT is to enable a deeper comprehension of the opportunities and risks connected to processes of digitalization and to prospectively understand potential normative conflicts. This is meant to allow an ethical orientation of individual and societal use of digital technologies and to identify potentials for shaping technological change.
