The Ethics of Crash Optimisation Algorithms by John Danaher

Patrick Lin started it. In an article entitled ‘The Ethics of Autonomous Cars’ (published in The Atlantic in 2013), he considered the principles that self-driving cars should follow when they encountered tricky moral dilemmas on the road. We all encounter these situations from time to time. Something unexpected happens and you have to make a split second decision. A pedestrian steps onto the road and you don’t see him until the last minute: do you slam on the brakes or swerve to avoid? Lin made the obvious point that no matter how safe...

This Artificial Womb Could Revolutionize the Way We Treat Premature Babies by George Dvorsky

Incubators and ventilators are invaluable when treating extremely premature infants, but they’re a far cry from the cozy confines of a mother’s womb. In an effort to create an environment that more closely approximates the real thing, researchers have now developed an artificial womb that could dramatically reduce mortality and disease in preemies.

Propriété intellectuelle du vivant, brevets et longévité pour tous by Hadrian Pourbahman

Beaucoup se représentent la propriété intellectuelle sous la forme d’une taxe : taxe sur la copie privée, sur les droits d’auteur… Mais en réalité, cette notion, dont l’origine remonte au XVème siècle, s’est peu à peu immiscée dans tous les aspects de notre société, y compris lorsque que l’on raisonne en terme de droit du vivant et de longévité.

How to Plug the Robot Responsibility Gap by John Danaher

iller robots. You have probably heard about them. You may also have heard that there is a campaign to stop them. One of the main arguments that proponents of the campaign make is that they will create responsibility gaps in military operations. The problem is twofold: (i) the robots themselves will not be proper subjects of responsibility ascriptions; and (ii) as they gain autonomy, there is more separation between what they do and the acts of the commanding officers or developers who allowed their use, and so less ground for holding these p...

Algorithmic Freedom as Non-Domination by John Danaher

Freedom is important. Modern liberal societies are built around it. Citizens fight for their fundamental freedoms — rights to speech, thought, religious expression, education, work and so on — and governments are evaluated relative to their success in securing these freedoms. But liberal freedom is a highly contested concept.

Utopia Now! by Rick Searle

Given all the chaos and pessimism lately and in light of the fact that with the inauguration of Trump we will be walking into very dangerous times, it’s perhaps a good moment for a little bit of hope, though the progressive rallies over the last few days certainly make me feel hopeful.
