  2. 2. Human enhancement and technological uncertainty : Essays on the promise and peril of emerging technology

    Författare :Karim Jebari; Sven-Ove Hansson; Sarah Chan; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Filosofi; Philosophy;

    Sammanfattning : Essay I explores brain machine interface (BMI) technologies. These make direct communication between the brain and a machine possible by means of electrical stimuli. This essay reviews the existing and emerging technologies in this field and offers an inquiry into the ethical problems that are likely to emerge. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : This study is a contribution to the bioethical debate about new and possibly emerging reproductive technologies. Its point of departure is the intuition, which many people seem to share, that using such technologies to select non-disease traits – like sex and emotional stability - in yet unborn children is morally problematic, at least more so than using the technologies to avoid giving birth to children with severe genetic diseases, or attempting to shape the non-disease traits of already existing children by environmental means, like education.

  5. 5. Human-computer interaction principles for developing web-based genomics resources

    Författare :Chanaka Mannapperuma; Nathaniel Street; John Waterworth; Marek Mutwil; Umeå universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Genomics projects, including genome sequencing, transcriptomics, genome-wide association mapping and epigenetics assays, producevast quantities of data. Extracting the required information from such complex datasets is a significant challenge and even where software tools do exist, these are often not intuitive or designed fornon-specialist users.
