    SSPS HDR Ethics Seminar


    The approach to ethics in research currently does not fully understand or incorporate the changes in the dynamical synthetic ecology in which our systems actually operate. This has been made even more complex and potentially uncertain and unstable through the levels of socio-info/techno connectivity we now enjoy compared to three decades ago. Our decisions and solutions are often deeply entangled in ways that it is almost impossible to measure (Atkinson 2010). This short talk will look at the place of ethics in our rapidly changing world and the indivisibility between ethics and technology, as we enter the Quantum Age.
