Computers & Ethics Lecture Notes + Recommended Podcasts

It is change, continuing change, inevitable change, that is the dominant factor in society today. No sensible decision can be made any longer without taking into account not only the world as it is, but the world as it will be. — Isaac Asimov

This is not a blog post! I wanted my Medium to include the lecture notes at Bahçeşehir University, Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Artificial Intelligence Engineering Department in the Spring 2022 Term. So I thought it would be more accessible.

I invited valuable and expert guests to the lecture. We had a great time with the interactive participation of international students. I have decided to present to you the notes I have drawn from our technical and non-technical discussions regarding new technologies and ethical practices from the perspective of different cultures. I hope this has been of great use to some of you!
