The growth of the digital economy and widespread use of AI has resulted in personal data processing growth and societal change at an unprecedented rate. Events like the Cambridge Analytica scandal have highlighted the need for heightened consideration of the ethical issues of the digital revolution, particularly around privacy and data protection. These are interdisciplinary concerns cross-cutting both the social sciences, law, ethics as well as computing, engineering, maths, health and business domains. There is a clear need to raise awareness, debate the issues and share best practice.

Dr Rob Brennan, DCU School of Computing, and Dr Fiachra O'Brolchain, Insitute of Ethics, School of Theology, Philosophy, and Music, DCU, have organised four free cross-disciplinary lunchtime lectures for the DCU Ethics and Privacy Week 2022. These virtual lectures will bring together a variety of experts to discuss the current issues and concerns in the area of ethics and privacy.
