The Reilly Center explores conceptual, ethical and policy issues where science and technology intersect with society from different disciplinary perspectives. Its goal is to promote the advancement of science and technology for the common good.

 

The center generates its annual list of emerging ethical dilemmas and policy issues in science and technology with the help of Reilly fellows, other Notre Dame experts and friends of the center.

Rethink: An Effective Way to Prevent Cyberbullying

I hypothesized that if adolescents(ages 12-18) were provided an alert mechanism that suggested them to re-think their decision if they expressed willingness to post a mean/hurtful message on social media, the number of mean/hurtful messages adolescents will be willing to post would be lesser than adolescents that are not provided with such an alert mechanism. In order to check if my hypothesis was true, I created two Software systems: 1) Baseline 2) Rethink. "Rethink" system measured number of mean/hurtful messages adolescents were willing to post after being alerted to rethink, while the "Baseline" system measured the same without the alert. Results proved that adolescents were 93.43% less willing to post mean/hurtful messages using a "Rethink" system compared with "Baseline" system without alert. After successfully proving my hypothesis, I put together product prototype for "Rethink" for web and mobile platforms.

It's Official: The Internet Of Things Takes Over Big Data As The Most Hyped Technology | ICT ethical dimension | Scoop.it
Gartner released last week its latest Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies. Last year, big data reigned supreme, at what Gartner calls the “peak of inflated expectations.”  But now big data has moved down the “trough of disillusionment,” replaced by the Internet of Things at the top of the hype cycle.

Big Data with Human Characteristics

Big data is becoming a dominant paradigm for making sense of the world around us. It promises novel insights and knowledge at scale. But the power dynamics of big data privilege those with the consolidated information and with the tools to analyze and interpret at that scale.

No son solo las 'cookies', los colores de tu pantalla también te delatan | ICT ethical dimension | Scoop.it

Una nueva herramienta tecnológica ha entrado en la carrera por aprender del internauta. Se trata de un sistema denominado canvas fingerprinting, o lienzo de toma de huellas, como podríamos traducirlo. Desde luego no aporta tanta información como las cookies, pero a cambio resulta mucho más difícil de detectar y bloquear, y además no entra dentro de los sistemas que la ley española obliga a declarar, de forma que no es necesario indicar su uso a los internautas.
