Gartner analyst Frank Buytendijk has proposed a new approach to programming and system development based on ethical impact, as the explosion of smart machines and devices brings the internet of things (IoT) into the mainstream.
In a series of proposals, Buytendijk, a research vice-president and distinguished analyst at Gartner, said CIOs need to begin to consider how to develop ethical programming standards for smart machines to realise their potential and secure successful futures for the many businesses that will come to rely on them.
