This concept led to defining the new term “iEthics": It summarizes the ethical principles of CDR in Construction Engineering towards meaningful and intelligent application of AI methods. 

"Values ​​and Ethics are integral part of today`s Engineering academic training for Engineer`s skills shaping digital transformation."

"There is a strong need to create awareness for human-led AI."

"Artificial Intelligence has greater potential than the steam engine. Ethical framework lays the sustainable foundation."

"The dynamics go hand in hand with corporate responsibility and embedding ethical value management in a society that is increasingly fundamentally changing from digitization and artificial intelligence technologies."

"We are in the middle of a renaissance of value orientation."

“The suggestion for a new Knowledge Society, Ethics and the return of values ​​to craftsmanship and education of heart.”
