Computer ethics : cautionary tales and ethical dilemmas in computing by Tom Forester( Book )

43 editions published between 1990 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 2,047 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Computer Ethics exposes the dangers of letting society rely too heavily on computers. Written by two insiders, it provides balanced and authoritative coverage of such topics as software unreliability, computer crime, software theft, hacking, viruses, unmanageable complexity, invasions of privacy, "artificial intelligence," and degraded work. The authors describe these problem areas with fascinating, often dramatic examples of computer abuse and misuse, augmented by extensive notes and references, role-playing exercises, and hypothetical situations. There are suggestions for further discussion at the end of each chapter. Forester and Morrison argue that it is the nature of computer systems to be unreliable, insecure, and unpredictable, and that society must face the consequences. Computer Ethics is an outgrowth of the authors' work with computer science students, focusing on the ethical dilemmas these students will confront as professionals. -- from dust jacket
