Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies



The Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies is an organization that fosters "the ethical use of technology to expand human capacities"

Futurists have been examining the potential impacts of emerging technologies for decades, creating scenarios that inform anticipatory democratic debate and prospective social policy-making. In the program on the Consequences and Ethics of Emerging Technologies the IEET seeks to catalog the emerging technologies we believe will extend human capacities and to create a database of their projected consequences.
