  • Title: The Technolife Method : Technolife proudly presents: the final results
    Descriptive info: The Technolife Method.. Throughout the last 30 years ethics has become increasingly important for the regulation and governance of new and emerging sciences and technologies.. Central elements in the establishment of ethics as a tool for governance have been the discipline of bioethics, the coming of patient's rights in medicine and, increasingly, privacy regulations and data protection related to information and communication technologies.. Before such disruptive events as the fall of the Berlin Wall, the coming of the Internet or the global war on terrorism, one could reasonably argue that ethical issues could be dealt with through concepts such as autonomy, privacy and informed consent.. One could also argue that these could be taken care of by a few experts, such as medical doctors, lawyers, ethicists or engineers, scientists, ethicists or policy makers seeking to promote more democratic means of governance.. Recent EU policy reports on ethics and governance of emerging technologies are unequivocal about the need to develop more complex and future-oriented modes of ethics for governance.. Important reasons  ...   to these issues.. It is a suite of exploratory, qualitative and quantitative steps:.. 1.. A scoping exercise that defines hot topics in relation to the technological fields.. Hot topics are issues of concern that involve unsolved social, moral or political tensions and that are immature for regulatory definition and resolution.. 2.. Deliberation within KerTechno, our specially designed online open-source software in which citizens and stakeholders discuss the hot topics.. The purpose of the deliberation exercise is to elicit arguments, concerns, imaginaries and alternative frames of understanding with respect to central policy issues seen in the light of broader cultural developments.. 3.. An online KerTechno voting system, allowing for quantitative analysis of results.. 4.. A qualitative, analytical procedure that identifies the arguments, concerns, imaginaries and alternative frames of understanding elicited by the participatory exercise and defines their relation and relevance to early stages of S T and policy development.. Both the theoretical framework underlying it and its balance between approaches are essential features that give TECHNOLIFE its innovative character and robustness..

    Descriptive info: … in this era of rapid and sweeping advancement, we see the old world struggling to guide and restrain the process of advancement into the new (next?) world.. Recording companies howl bloody murder in the old courts about people "stealing their livelihood" by making and distributing pirate copies of their intellectual properties.. Yesterday's telephone companies become today's facilitators of information and entertainment access..

And while I am not suggesting that we merely use the haves to help the have nots, some people just need a little nudge to get them more involved, and, once nudged, can become powerful allies in our fight for social justice..

    Descriptive info: Biometrics.. BIOMETRICS HOT TOPICS.. In the TECHNOLIFE paradigm, hot topics are issues of concern that involve unsolved social, moral and/or political tensions and that are immature for regulatory definition and resolution.. In the case of.. a).. Social justice.. - Can biometrics promote freedom of movement, security and justice? Could new mechanisms of exclusion and discrimination be built into these systems?.. b).. Surveillance and privacy.. - What does "privacy" mean for you? Could biometrics improve privacy and security at the same time?.. c).. Trust in technology and in government.. - Can governments and operators be entrusted with keeping our personal and biometric information?.. Debating (in) a policy vacuum?.. In the Western world, the introduction of biometrics was intimately connected to the fight against terrorism.. This greatly stimulated corporate and government security activities.. Policies have been marked by secrecy and a.. lack of information.. , rendering biometric futures uncertain.. Great urgency coupled with.. legal and technical complexity.. also contributed to.. poor conditions for.. communication and.. public debate.. ".. The main problem is lack of trust.. Lack of trust is particularly a problem regarding Governments.. If we could trust Governments and if we could trust people in our communities then we would have little need for privacy.. ",.. Singularity.. Utopia, forum participant.. CITIZENS: CONNECTED TO THE SYSTEM?.. Citizens, immigrants, travellers and users of critical infrastructure are increasingly connected through a number of information systems.. Biometric devices such as fingerprint readers and face scanners radically scale up the potential for.. connecting individuals and groups to centralised systems.. Governments looking for new ways to keep track of dangerous individuals have embraced biometric information systems, such as the VIS, SIS II and EURODAC.. But biometrics may also be used to.. give rights to people.. : If the state does not know who you are, it cannot grant you access to social services and basic human rights, such as voting..

  • Title: BODY : Technolife proudly presents: the final results
    Descriptive info: HOT TOPICS.. In the academic-ethical literature on.. human enhancement and body modification.. one can find some key controversies: About the body (its.. stability/malleability.. and its normative significance); about what should.. count as enhancements.. ; about the importance of.. justice.. and.. equality.. in the distribution of enhancements; and about the.. choice of moral and political theory.. Science fiction literature offers an even wider range of issues, such as:.. Issues.. Ethical concerns.. Social.. Control:.. Order and violence, surveillance, xenophobia, security, cheating, autonomy and freedom, colonization, eugenic selection.. Distinctions/inequality:.. Gender, class, marginalization of the (non-) modified.. Identity.. (individual).. Identity/memory loss, borders of humanity, split personalities, human/non-human rights (animals, androids), individualism, privacy, moral enhancement, loyalty, safety, freedom.. Immortality.. (life-span).. Overpopulation/depopulation, intergenerational disorders, extinction (loss of adaptability), evolutionary transcendence.. For our TECHNOLIFE deliberation on enhancement and body modification, the following hot topics (see reverse side) were chosen:.. Normality versus Perfection.. Freedom of choice and social difference.. c ).. F.. o.. rever young.. The topics were presented in a short movie:.. youtube.. com/watch?v=STiuB7nQn1w.. The.. online debate.. with participants was a.. success.. There was considerable activity, and it.. exhibited.. real in-depth engagement.. with the issues being debated.. Importantly, two frames of understanding emerged:.. 1).. Social justice, power.. voluntariness.. 2) New aspects of enhancement technologies can be seen if they are understood both as biotechnologies and as.. analogous.. to ICTs, using concepts of.. open source, sharing and connectivity.. I found the video showing scary developments.. I would not want to live in such a.. world and I do not believe in human perfection.. " "ICT2010", TECHNOLIFE forum participant.. We see memes wash over the internet on a weekly basis right now.. Imagine how powerful those memes will be when they directly and swiftly flow into the physical world in the form of instant clothing, personal electronics, furniture, body implants, engeneered organisms and custom-designed matter.. Try being "normal" when variety is the order of the day.. Rockpiler, TECHNOLIFE forum participant.. Improvement and experimentality in high-tech cultures.. Academic debates about human enhancement often turn around the high-flying positions of "transhumanists" and  ...   current social structure.. The hoarding of wealth that has come with our Agricultural Revolution, and the tiered social hierarchies that developed to direct such a lifestyle both will need to change in order to establish a more stable and peaceful future, in my opinion.. "Midare", TECHNOLIFE Forum participant.. Enhancing the digital agora.. Citizens want to be involved.. Many see a non-commercial ".. open source.. pathway as an interesting and viable option for enhancements, also as a counterweight to the power of corporate and state actors.. For European authorities, the.. policy challenge.. is to develop institutional arrangements that can accommodate the.. transformation.. from a centralised and reactive mode of governance.. to a truly participatory and proactive mode.. In the case of enhancement this means more than debate:.. Citizens.. should be engaged as.. co-producers of enhancement knowledge and technologies.. I also don't believe in human perfection, but I do believe in the quest for human perfection.. ".. Deth, TECHNOLIFE forum participant.. The exponential improvement of technology will make extensive body and mind enhancement possible within decades.. Mainly through changing our genes and by emerging with machines (which by then will be just as quot;human quot; as we are, and not like the machines we know today)..
