Workshop – Ethics and Technology: Some Issues


Have you ever wondered if we should fear robots to become sort of terminators in a not too distant future? How far should human enhancement go? What kind of duties do we have towards nature, and why?


The workshop on “Ethics and Technology: Some Issues”
on November 15th, 2017, 2-6pm, at the foyer of the institute for technical education and university didactic, Am Irrgarten 3-9 (Q), 21073 Hamburg

invites you to discuss the main controversies in contemporary bioethics, especially those concerning the intersection between ethics and technology.
