Emerging Technologies and Public Policy

The investigation of social and policy consequences of emerging technologies, like biotechnology, information technology, and nanotechnology, represents a new emphasis for the Institute. Our growing technical capabilities have implications for every societal institution, from economics and business to religion and the family. It is important to begin to address the philosophical and policy questions that surround this type of change and innovation in a systematic and thoughtful way.
