Technology is not neutral

It seems that just about every new technology that we bring to bear on improving our lives brings with it some downside, side effect, or unintended consequence. These issues can pose very real and growing ethical problems for all of us. How do we understand and frame these debates, and work out strategies at personal and governmental levels? The keynote will provide answers to this question drawing on the main findings from the book: Technology Is Not Neutral: A Short Guide to Technology Ethics.
