ACM Committee on Professional Ethics members Don Gotterbarn, Marty J. Wolf, Catherine Flick and Keith Miller provide an interesting overview of public and professionals interest in computing ethics from the dawn of the computing age to the present day in ACM Inroads. The article gives valuable background knowledge for understanding the place and importance of the ACM Code of Ethics: http://ow.ly/LGIT30kT5gL

“The ACM, like software development in general, is more global than it was during the last century; the updated Code needs to reflect broad, intercultural professional ethics.” Bo Brinkman, Don Gotterbarn, Keith Miller, Marty J. Wolf reflect on the social, technological and cultural factors that led to updated ACM Code of Ethics, and the efforts the ACM Committee on Professional Ethics took to ensure that the updated Code reflects the experiences, values and aspirations of computing professionals around the world.

In a 2016 ACM Inroads article, ACM Committee on Professional Ethics Co-Chair Don Gotterbarn discussed the ever-evolving role of computing in society, and the need for the updated #ACMCodeOfEthics to serve as a bridge between the two.
"The Code’s imperatives are the ethical glue which connects our computing practices to society. It is not sufficient to limit any computer discipline to addressing purely technical issues… We must acknowledge and embrace our role in shaping society, and take responsibility for our part in those changes."

Two years ago, when the project to update the #ACMCodeOfEthics and Professional Conduct was initiated, ACM Committee on Professional Ethics Co-Chair Marty Wolf wrote in Communications of the ACM that the updated Code “can help us better express the value of the profession, which rests in part on effective ethical analysis and decision making. This in turn, places a special burden on universities to establish a foundation for those abilities in students considering entering the computing profession.”

Read Wolf’s comments on the integral role that the ACM Code of Ethics plays in translating broad ethical principles into concrete statements about professional conduct for computing professionals: http://ow.ly/bw9J30kSTu0
