ACM Affirms Obligation of Computing Professionals to Use Skills for Benefit of Society

Nice to see ACM update it’s Code of Ethics. Amazing that it hadn’t been updated in 26 years. Consider how much the world of computing has changed in 26 years.

After a two-year process that included extensive input from computing professionals around the world, ACM, the Association for Computing Machinery, has updated its Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct. The revised Code of Ethics addresses the significant advances in computing technology and the growing pervasiveness of computing in all aspects of society since it was last updated in 1992.

I applaud the continuing discussion around ethics in computing. It’s nice to see privacy included in the code.
