Veranstaltung: Merging of man and machine - questions of ethics in dealing with emerging technology

Technology has fundamentally altered our lives and will continue to do so. Ethical considerations must remain guiding posts at all times. Undoubtedly, how we approach the regulation of emerging technologies will have wide implications for our definition of human dignity and the equality of individuals. With this and further discussions we would like to develop a position on how society should respond to questions like How will our lives and our society change with the increasing fusion with modern technology? What role have politics and law in this context? Is there a need for regulation and if so, how? How can human rights be addressed?

This debate is organised by the Green Working Group Robotics – Jan Philipp Albrecht, Max Andersson, Julia Reda, Michel Reimon and Terry Reintke.
