The European Data Protection Supervisor will establish a new Ethics Board and has urged exploration of the "ethical dimension in future technologies to retain the value of human dignity and prevent individuals being reduced to mere data subjects." The recommendation follows the EDPS 2015-2019 Action Plan, announced earlier this year. EPIC has previously noted that computer scientists were among the first to establish ethical obligations for the development and use of new information technologies.
