Computing in a Global Society

Computing has brought the people of the world closer together but has also divided us in significant ways. This course examines the development of the global computing society, compares its impact and influence on developed and developing countries, and discusses the responsibilities of those who dominate it. This course addresses the effects that computing has on the global society and its individuals rather than the technical content of computing. Hands-on experiences are used to illustrate the disparity of computing resources among societies, the immediate and global impact of computing on the global society, and differences in how societies control access to computing resources.
