Human enhancement is gaining attention in the sciences, humanities, and public debates. People are excited and worried about the promises for healthy persons to augment “normal” physical, cognitive, or affective functions.

Human genomics, human enhancement, artificial intelligence and robotics offer benefits for both individuals and society. However, these technologies also challenge our understanding of what is ethical.

The SIENNA project will provide frameworks to help develop research ethics protocols, professional ethical codes and better legal frameworks. On 4 April 2018, the SIENNA project and Uppsala University’s Centre for Research Ethics & Bioethics (CRB) invites you to an after work talk and discussion on human enhancement and why it matters to you.

Come and listen to the presentation! If you have time, you are welcome to stay for a drink, discussion and food with SIENNA researchers.
