Information technology, biotechnology, and nanotechnology have converged in ways that were not easily anticipated. As a result, new fields of applied ethics, such as digital ethics and AI ethics, have also emerged in response to the cluster of ethical problems generated by recent technologies. Herman Tavani examines a range of ethical issues – from privacy and autonomy to trust and dependency. He also considers the question: What does it mean to be human in an age of AI and Chatbots?
