SLG Seminar- 15/02/2024

Thibault Roux will organize a debate on the subject mentioned below:

“Recent advances in technology have raised many questions and concerns about their impact on our societies. Many people are concerned about military use, mass surveillance or disinformation. From a more global perspective, Nick Bostrom, a philosopher, theorizes the vulnerable world hypothesis which predicts that science will destroy humanity.
In this debate, we will question our own biases as researchers and try to answer the ethical questions raised by this hypothesis. Is science a threat to humanity? Should we stop science? Or more seriously, can we find a solution to prevent ourselves from self-destruction ?”
