It introduces an existential ethics of care – through a conversation between existentialism, virtue ethics and a feminist ethics of care – that sides with and never leaves the vulnerable human body, while recognizing human diversity and the plurality of lived experience of technology. This implies moving beyond the “ethical turn,” by revisiting basic questions about what it means to be human, mortal and embodied, in order to safeguard existential needs and necessities in an age of increased automation. Recognizing that biometrics has beneficial affordances, the key argument is nevertheless that it implicates humans through unprecedented forms of objectification, through which the existential body – the frail, finite, concrete and unique human being – is at stake. Zooming in on three sites where this is currently manifest, the presentation will stress that an existential ethics of care is importantly not a solutionist list of principles or suggestions, but a way of thinking about the ethical challenges of living with biometrics in today’s world. The focus on basic existential stakes within human lived experience, should serve as the foundation on which comprehensive frameworks can be built to address the complexities and prospects for ethical machines, responsible biometrics and AI.</span></p> <p><br /></p> <p><span>———————— </span></p> <p><span><strong>Name</strong></span><span>: <a href="https://bplank.github.io/">Barbara Plank</a><br /></span><span style="background-color:initial"><strong>Title</strong></span><span style="background-color:initial">: Professor<br /></span><span style="background-color:initial"><strong>Affiliation</strong></span><span style="background-color:initial">: IT University of Copenhagen, Denmark</span></p> <p><span> </span></p> <p><span><strong>Short Bio</strong></span><span><strong>:</strong> Barbara Plank is Professor in the Computer Science Department at ITU (IT University of Copenhagen).

In response to that, there has been much recent talk of AI ethics . But talk is cheap. &quot;Ethics washing&quot; — also called “ethics theater” — is the practice of fabricating or exaggerating a company’s interest in equitable AI systems that work for everyone. I will argue that the ethical lense is too narrow. The real issue is how to deal with technology's impact on society. Technology is driving the future, but who is doing the steering?</span></p> <p><span> </span></p> <p><span>—————————— </span></p> <p><span> </span></p> <p><span><strong>MODERATOR: </strong></span></p> <strong> </strong><p><span> </span></p> <p><span><strong>Name</strong></span><span>: <a href="http://www.math.chalmers.se/~olleh/">Olle Häggström</a><br /></span><span style="background-color:initial"><strong>Affiliation</strong></span><span style="background-color:initial">: Department of Mathematical Sciences, Chalmers (Sweden)<br /></span><span style="background-color:initial"><strong><br /></strong></span></p> <p><span style="background-color:initial"><strong>Short Bio</strong></span><span style="background-color:initial">: Olle Häggström is a professor of mathematical statistics at Chalmers University of Technology and a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.

For 1D nanomaterials their natural embodiment is as aligned fibres or fabrics that efficiently exploit the axial properties of their constituents. We work with a method to produce macroscopic solids made of 1D nanostructured directly collected as they grow floating in the gas phase. The resulting ensembles are “macromolecular” networks with many superior properties compared to monolithic materials: fibers of carbon nanotubes have tensile mechanical properties above many high-performance polymer fibers; fabrics of CNTs are ideal built-in porous current collectors to eliminate electron resistance limitations in composite battery electrodes, sheets of silicon nanowires are flexible and have high cyclability as lithium-ion battery anodes. </div> <div style="font-size:14px"><br /></div> <div style="font-size:14px"><span style="font-weight:700">Juan J.

Multifunctionality, for instance integrating energy storage capabilities to structural components, is a key enabling technology in realizing substantial weight savings on the system level. Carbon fibres are widely used as reinforcements in polymer composites, while graphite powders are widely used as negative electrodes in batteries. Thus, using carbon fibres as negative electrodes, together with solid electrolyte and other components, one can build the so-called structural composite batteries. Imaging the doors and hoods of an electric car also store energy! However, almost all carbon fibres were developed from the mechanical point of view; a fundamental understanding on the behaviour of carbon fibres under the dynamic electrochemical and mechanical processes in structural composite batteries, and on the relationship between their performance and microstructure are still largely lacking. We aim to gain a fundamental understanding of carbon fibres in the multifunctional composites.</div> <div style="font-size:14px"><br /></div> <div style="font-size:14px"><span style="font-weight:700">Fang Liu</span> is Associate Professor at the Department of Industrial and Materials Science.
