The article “Brave new world: Dr Aimee van Wynsberghe straddles the worlds of science and ethics, and is shaping the conversations of both.” has just been posted online. It is also available in the print magazine. From the article:
[Dr. van Wynsberghe] reckons that given humanity’s track record with cellphones and personal computers and the environmental damage that has followed from their manufacture and disposal, or the story of exploitation of coffee farmers, or child labour in the global garment industry, “I think we can pretty safely see where we’re going to go with robotics and AI.”
This is part of the reason she is pushing so hard for a certification programme for robotics and AI, which could assist humanity and technology companies to, this time, ‘steer in a different direction’.
