Ethical Aspects of Converging Technologies


Presenter: Herman Tavani

Information technology, biotechnology, and nanotechnology are converging in ways that were not easily anticipated. We now have distinct new fields such as bioinformatics, computational genomics, nanocomputing and ubiquitous computing. These converging and emerging technologies also introduce a cluster of ethical problems that were not easy to predict or anticipate. Herman Tavani examines a range of issues -- from privacy and informed consent to autonomy and freedom to property rights involving the ownership of genetic information that resides in databases.
