The vision for the ETHICx Center includes the following tenets:

  • Modern societies rely on technological innovations, which evolve so rapidly that society’s capacity to anticipate and understand their consequences often lags behind.

  • Georgia Tech is well situated to become the leader in framing ethical concerns such as fairness, accountability, and transparency in research, practice, and educational efforts related to technology innovations.

  • ETHICx engages various stakeholders in systematic ethical analyses, decision-making techniques, and technology development processes centered around the societal impacts of research, education, and innovation.

  • Research on social justice and technological change is also a major thrust of the Center’s mission.

  • ETHICx will be a global resource for communities, corporations, educational institutions, governments, or technologists, who are grappling with complex ethical issues related to science and technology.
