The mission of IAΣTA, the International Applied Ethics and Technology Association is to raise awareness about ethical issues in technology innovation and practice. In a field without official codes of professional conduct or licensing requirements, with obsolete legislation and vertiginous innovation, it is critical for customers, practitioners, entrepreneurs, business executives, regulators, lawyers and law enforcement officers to consider the ethical issues around the uses and abuses of technology. We want to share knowledge and to promote conversations about these important issues.

Our panel of experts identified the top ethics and technology issues for 2017, including drones, driverless cars, government spying, innovation, big data, cyber security threats, and mobile devices. Read their predictions here.
