This unit focuses on the ethics of digital transformation. The rapid development of artificial intelligence, machine learning, business analytics and automation has major implications for how people, organisations and societies operate. Ethical issues range from privacy considerations, security, transformation of jobs in the workforce, freedom of expression, reliability of digital transformation solutions, and environmental and social responsibility considerations. The key aim of this unit is to equip students with the skills to understand, identify and analyse these issues in a business and societal context.
