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...

Homo deus? The convergence of man and machine by Roland Benedikter

People have always tried to develop techniques that expand their skills. What is new is that man and machine are fusing together: prostheses and orthoses strengthen physical strength, computers support intellectual performance, and artificial intelligence has the potential to expand human consciousness. Much of it sounds utopian, some is already reality. It is high time to deal with the consequences: Will these techniques change our humanity? What needs to be done to minimize risks? And what opportunities open up?

Sauver le symbole by Marc Roux

Nous pouvons nous accorder avec certains critiques du transhumanisme pour dire que la convergence NBIC met en question notre rapport au langage et aux symboles. Or, il est probable qu’ils contribuent à ce qui fait émerger l’humain. Une pensée transhumaniste peut-elle relever ce défi ? Le symbolisme s’évanouira-t-il dans nos machines computationnelles ?

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...
