From page 1...
... Responsible research requires that the ethical and societal impacts of computing research and the technologies the research enables be first-order concerns of the computing research community. To ensure that computing research addresses these impacts and concerns and supports human flourishing, thriving societies, and a healthy planet, computing researchers must consult and collaborate with scholars and researchers in the humanities and social and behavioral sciences, particularly but not only those who study moral reasoning or the empirical analysis of sociotechnical systems or who can help cultivate moral imagination about alternative outcomes.
From page 2...
... The report's recommendations are collectively aimed at all actors in the computing research ecosystem, including researchers; organizations that sponsor and carry out research in academia, industry, and government; scientific societies; and scholarly publishers. They define practices to help foster responsible computing research, including identification and mitigation of potential harms as well as promotion of research providing ethical and societal benefits.
From page 3...
... Universities, scientific and professional societies, and research and education sponsors should support the development of the expertise needed to integrate social and behavioral science and ethical thinking into computing research. Academic institutions should reshape their computer science and engineering curricula and curricula in social and behavioral sciences and the humanities to better equip students to address the ethical and societal impacts of computing, and to support their graduates' abilities to assist public and private sector institutions in making better decisions as they acquire computing technologies.
From page 4...
... Specific opportunities for such engagement include informing the public, assisting public and private sector acquirers of computing technologies, and bringing potential adverse consequences of emerging technologies to the attention of governments and other public organizations. In addition, universities, research sponsors, and scientific societies should create opportunities for computing researchers to learn how to effectively serve in advisory capacities.
