Computer ethics is a part of practical philosophy concerned with how computing professionals should make decisions regarding professional and social conduct. Maner noticed ethical concerns that were brought up during his Medical Ethics course at Old Dominion University became more complex and difficult when the use of technology and computers became involved. The concept of computer ethics originated in the s with MIT professor Norbert Wiener , the American mathematician and philosopher. While working on anti-aircraft artillery during World War II , Wiener and his fellow engineers developed a system of communication between the part of a cannon that tracked a warplane, the part that performed calculations to estimate a trajectory, and the part responsible for firing. A bit later during the same year, the world's first computer crime was committed.
When we think of ethics, in all its senses, we assume that we are addressing the essential characteristic that distinguishes human beings from nonhuman beings. I believe, according with many philosophers, that what really differentiates man, and that is at the root of his unavoidable ethical dimension, is not his rationality reason but his freedom. Such freedom is under many types of restrictions, but it exists, and therefore, it may be practiced. Without freedom, we cannot talk about ethics, but about biological or social historical determinism, and we could not talk about responsibility either, and consequently, ethics. Such responsibility is seen, according to Ricoeur , directly in immediate short interpersonal relationships, or indirectly, in last relationships i. Intermediated by institutions or the environment. The second assumption involves the need to propose a base for research and the adoption of Digital Ethics.

And, to justify these messages, we address the following questions:. That individual should possess the following knowledge, skills and capabilities:. In this context, the descriptors the ACS uses to define levels of membership can be stated as:. SFIA is a two-dimensional table that represents skill sets on one dimension and levels of responsibility, or capability, on the other.
