Short Course Description

The course is a basic course in ethics, which studies the topic mainly through the lenses of information privacy. Its objective is to teach students to analyse social concepts such as privacy, discrimination, and disinformation in a manner which allows systematic discussion and resolution. The center of the course is building fundamental models of privacy based on Social Representation Theory and Game Theory. However, the course also includes a primer to Israeli and international law, and an extensive review of privacy preserving technologies.
Grading is based in half on diverse home assignments which include watching movies, reading news articles, analyzing formal games, and programming. The other half is based on a final exam in which students analyze case studies and formal games, and answer multiple-choice questions on course material. Home assignments, if submitted, are accounted for as a 20% bonus to the respective home assignment (up to a 100% limit).
