To better understand these ethical dilemmas created by today's ever-changing technologies and how these issues continue to affect individuals, companies, and society, this recent book explores the impacts of decisions made by technology companies on everyday life through the modern research lens of experts in technology, law, cyberpsychology, business and more. Below you will find Professor Fudge's simple guide to some of the applications of the book, as well as her personal insights into this research.


Editor Question & Answer

What inspired you to lead this book project?

Prof. Fudge: Technology can be both awe-inspiring and terrifying, as there are so many things we can do today that we could not yesterday. We have to question whether or not each of these new developments is in the best interest of our world – or not.

How does your publication stand out from others like it?

Prof. Fudge: There are surely other sources for technology ethics, but this volume's chapters present an excellent depth and detail on a wide variety of concerns – all in one volume.

What is your professional background that gives you the knowledge needed to lead this publication?

Prof. Fudge: I currently teach IT students and write university curriculum, but have a rather unique background in writing and the organization of ideas. This includes the development of a detailed academic advisor's handbook for one university, serving as editor/writer/desktop publisher for another school's diversity news, and writing 70 newsletters for a small college. I also wrote and taught music curriculum and used to be a weekend correspondent for the Quad-City Times (Davenport, IA).

How is Exploring Ethical Problems in Today’s Technological World going to impact your field of research and how does it relate to current trends and social matters?

Prof. Fudge: Being informed is crucial for both the individual and an organization; as a teacher I see this as an important point in anything we read. Someone might not realize that DNA collection for genealogical purposes could be used by law enforcement, for example. They could think that simply not buying an autonomous car keeps that technology from affecting them, but this is not the case! Whether people are aware or not, all technology has the potential to affect every one of us.

Who will benefit from the research within Exploring Ethical Problems in Today’s Technological World

Prof. Fudge: College and university students, faculty and curriculum developers, IT professionals and managers, politicians who need background for proposing or changing legislation about technologies, and businesses with concerns about technology and ethics could benefit from reading these chapters. Others who are researching these topics may find new ideas and viewpoints, too.

What are some future directions for your research?

Prof. Fudge: Research and writing never ends – and technology keeps advancing! Perhaps a second volume could be in the not-too-distant future with new topics to explore.
