MIT Case Studies in Social and Ethical Responsibilities of Computing (SERC)

no title has been provided for this book

Faculty and students involved in Social and Ethical Responsibilities of Computing (SERC), a subgroup of MIT Schwarzman College of Computing, have launched a series of specially commissioned and peer-reviewed case studies to be used across a range of undergraduate classes and fields of study. These cases are intriguing, thought-provoking, and cover a wide array of technological, social, historical, philosophical, legal, and cultural topics that are necessary for the discussion of ethics in computation and data science. The cases are brief, interactive, and contain a set of discussion questions at the end that force the reader to think critically about how best to address instances of bias and discrimination within common practices of technology. While these SERC case studies are intended to be used as an assignment in various MIT classes in computer science and other fields for the students, they are of great relevance and interest to computing professionals, policymakers, and general readers. If you are looking for a digestable yet insightful read on ways in which technology can be ethically detrimental, these case studies are a wonderful place to start.
