Ethics Research in Information Science

With the development of artificial intelligence technologies and social media, many questions arise regarding their social and ethical implications, such as protecting user privacy, prevention of bias and discrimination, presenting diverse opinions and inclusion, preventing identity theft, stopping the spread of disinformation or misinformation (such as fake news) and addiction, as well as promoting algorithmic transparency.

Ethics research in information and data science is a new field that uses a variety of data analysis and regulatory tools to identify problematic phenomena in large corpora and algorithms and propose solutions for preserving ethical principles and public safety online.
