Black Mirror - Technology Ethics

Nearly every technology that has been developed has been used for both good and bad. Developments that look like they could have a massive impact on civilization have usually also spun off a side effect that has a detrimental effect. This could be the latest technologies such as genetic engineering and artificial intelligence or older technologies such as the automobile.

This article discusses using an exercise during the development of the technology to identify these wrong uses and how/if they can be alleviated. Obviously it won’t catch or solve every scenario however even just doing this exercise is a step in the right direction.
