The Association for Computing Machinery, known simply as the ACM is a professional organization designed to advance the field of computing sciences and act as a resource to those in related professions.
Review the ACM Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct:
The paper is not formal, but meant to get you to read through the ACM Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct, think about each one, and do a short analysis.
Submit a paper in Word format (Font: 12 point, Times New Roman; Margins: 1-inch on all sides) that provides a thoughtful and well-written analysis on each section (1-4) of the ACM Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct. Then provide your thoughts on the ACM Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct as a whole. Please explain your thoughts in detail. At least 1 full paragraph per section and 2-3 full paragraphs on the whole.
Some things to consider: Do you feel a code of ethics is important for a group like the ACM? Is it unnecessary or does it serve a purpose? What if a group like this didn’t have a code of ethics? Are there any areas that you feel are either too general or restrictive?
