D1.1 Case studies

The SHERPA consortium looked at ten case studies that would give a broad overview of the many ethical issues faced in current use and implementation of smart information systems (artificial intelligence and Big Data). Smart information systems (SIS) offer businesses, governments, customers, and society as a whole, great potential and opportunity to increase profits, automate tedious jobs, improve services, and create advancements in knowledge and innovation. However, there are also many potential issues and concerns raised with emerging technologies. SIS are having a profound ability to shape and change the way we interact with the world and it is important to identify ethical issues being faced in different social domains.
