The 2018 Yearbook of the Digital Ethics Lab (Digital Ethics Lab Yearbook #1)

by David Watson Carl Öhman

This book explores a wide range of topics in digital ethics. It features 11 chapters that analyze the opportunities and the ethical challenges posed by digital innovation, delineate new approaches to solve them, and offer concrete guidance to harness the potential for good of digital technologies. The contributors are all members of the Digital Ethics Lab (the DELab), a research environment that draws on a wide range of academic traditions.The chapters highlight the inherently multidisciplinary nature of the subject, which cannot be separated from the epistemological foundations of the technologies themselves or the political implications of the requisite reforms. Coverage illustrates the importance of expert knowledge in the project of designing new reforms and political systems for the digital age. The contributions also show how this task requires a deep self-understanding of who we are as individuals and as a species.The questions raised here have ancient -- perhaps even timeless -- roots. The phenomena they address may be new. But, the contributors examine the fundamental concepts that undergird them: good and evil, justice and truth. Indeed, every epoch has its great challenges. The role of philosophy must be to redefine the meaning of these concepts in light of the particular challenges it faces. This is true also for the digital age. This book takes an important step towards redefining and re-implementing fundamental ethical concepts to this new era.

2020: The Year That Changed The World

by Naomi Watasa Lumutenga

This easy-to-follow informative book brings to the fore why 2020 will be etched in the memory of everyone who lived through it. Starting with new and rehashed words, it charts events of the year in accessible language and is refreshingly non-judgemental. When life returns to 'normal', some of the 2020 phenomena will sound unbelievable, when recounted in future years; this book is a must have for all who will want a quick memento of the year that shook the world, from east to west, and north to south. Events outlined include bringing busy skies, airports, and linked business chains to an abrupt halt, turning the world's busiest city centres into ghost streets and scenes of some reclaimed by previously shy and suppressed wildlife. It captures previously secure global events that were cancelled such as world trade expos, the Olympics, cultural festivals, and sacred religious gatherings - from the Muslim Hajj to Christian Easter. Its colourful illustrations bring to life experiences that were unthinkable a few months earlier, that became not just thinkable but real, as the year evolved. This mother-and daughter project acknowledges the pain that many endured but, it is a reminder that underneath the doom and gloom that dominated headlines lay many positives and opportunities for tech giants and hitherto unappreciated individuals, including centurions. It is unique in having something for everyone, everywhere, in an increasingly polarised world.

Just like their photographs continue to inspire today, now these pros’ words can live on as an invaluable reference for the photographers of the future. The truth and wisdom in this collection transcend time and technology.
