A Dangerous Master: How to Keep Technology from Slipping Beyond Our Control

Tuesday, June 2, 2015 08:00 AM to 09:15 AM

A Dangerous Master: How to Keep Technology from Slipping Beyond Our Control

Description

From combat drones to nanotechnology, 3-D printers to synthetic organisms, our most recent inventions increasingly defy the norms for acceptable uses of technology.

Who should be held accountable when machines break or people die? What responsibility do we, as creators and users, have for our technologies?

Wendell Wallach is a consultant, ethicist, and scholar at Yale University's Interdisciplinary Center for Bioethics. He is the author of A Dangerous Master: How to Keep Technology from Slipping Beyond Our Control.
