Based on six major technologies the Internet of Things, robotics, biometrics, persuasion technology, virtual & augmented reality, and digital platforms we address the social and ethical challenges that digitization raises. Our research of the scientific literature on the dominating technologies reveals six repeating themes: privacy, autonomy, security, human dignity, justice, and. In this paper, we emphasize the numerous changes in the digitizing society that seem to be at contradiction with these themes. harmony of power.

This study demonstrates how the recent digitization surge is stressing these common values. Stakeholders must be fully aware of these challenges in order to properly build the digital society in a socially and morally responsible manner. The largest advancements in supervision have been made in the fields of data protection and privacy. Regarding other moral concerns raised by digitization, such as discrimination, autonomy, human dignity, and an unfair power structure, there is less organisation in the supervision.
