2019 Should be the end of Big Attention by Marcelo Rinesi

If your business or cultural strategy was based on attention at scale, the first years of the century felt great, as the leading Internet platforms offered the possibility of nearly limitless, precisely targeted traffic. Then came the troubles

IEET Managing Director S. Umbrello on Designing a Nano-Safe Future The Solutions Journal

Nanotechnologies are fast becoming one of the most ubiquitous of the emerging technologies to have a commercial and economic impact. Along with artificial intelligence systems and biotechnologies, nanotechnology is a billion-dollar global industry that has massive product implications.

Made famous by K. Eric Drexler, Molecular Manufacturing (also known as atomically precise manufacturing (APM), molecular engineering or productive molecular nanosystems) is an emerging manufacturing technology that has the potential to shift current ec...

The politics of crime-fighting software by Marcelo Rinesi

Call it machine learning, Artificial Intelligence, or simply computational intelligence: countries are rushing to apply new technologies to combat crimes, but how they do so — and even what counts as crime — varies among them, and says much about their societies, priorities, and future.

IEET Managing Director Steven Umbrello publishes new paper on Nanotechnology Futures

Atomically precise manufacturing (APM) is the assembly of materials with atomic precision. APM does not currently exist, and may not be feasible, but if it is feasible, then the societal impacts could be dramatic. This paper assesses the net societal impacts of APM across the full range of important APM sectors: general material wealth, environmental issues, military affairs, surveillance, artificial intelligence, and space travel. Positive effects were found for material wealth, the environment, military affairs (specifically nuclear disarm...

Cyber-weapons as a form of magic, and why we can’t code our way to a safer internet by Marcelo Rinesi

Mainstream language about cyber-security, specially at the political and military level, is divorced from reality to the point of nonsense.

Managing Director Steven Umbrello Publishes New Article in JRI Journal of Responsible Innovation

This paper argues that although moral intuitions are insufficient for making judgments on new technological innovations, they maintain great utility for informing responsible innovation. To do this, this paper employs the Value Sensitive Design (VSD) methodology as an illustrative example of how stakeholder values can be better distilled to inform responsible innovation. Further, it is argued that moral intuitions are necessary for determining stakeholder values required for the design of responsible technologies. This argument is supported ...
