Discuss the ethics of increased automation and use of artificial intelligence systems in the workplace. Is automation a net positive or a net negative for society? Are business managers who increasingly turn to automation and artificial intelligence systems to create efficiency and value for their firm acting ethically in relation to their stakeholders? Why or why not? What impact do you think automation will have on classes of employees and the ability of workers in certain classes to continue work, and how might changes to that end affect employer/employee relations moving forward?
Based on three components:
1. Overall discussion and critical analysis of the ethical dilemma.
2. Use of evidence, including ethical and CSR theories, to evaluate ethical dilemmas.
3. Development of a ‘path forward’ for the ethical dilemma
