Michael Sandel caps off a weeklong topic of “The Ethics of Tech” with a Socratic talk on morals within the tech world.
Sandel is a Harvard political philosopher and bestselling author. He co-teaches a Harvard course titled, “Tech Ethics: AI, and the Future of Human Nature.” The course, co-taught by Douglas Melton, explores the moral, social, and political implications of new technologies and asks how science and technology are transforming the way we work, learn, make friends, raise children, care for our health, conduct our politics, and understand what it means to be human.
