Unit 5: Emerging technologies

About this unit

All of our lives are shaped by technology every day, and increasingly, these technologies are structuring the opportunities we have to live, work, play, and relate to one another. As technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) creep further into our lives, the need is greater than ever for careful reflection on their nature and implications. In this unit, we explore the ethical dimensions of technology, seeking to inject some nuance into our understanding of technology and its role in our lives.
