AI, Biotechnology and Human Rights

How do emerging technologies transform human rights and how should we regulate them?

The College of Humanities (EPFL, Lausanne) cordially invites you to the official launch of the book: «Cambridge Handbook of Information Technology, Life Sciences and Human Rights» under the patronage of the Swiss Commission for UNESCO.

Emerging technologies are transforming humans and thereby human rights. New ethical and legal issues are raised in various scientific fields, from biotechnology and neurotechnology to information technology. What ethical and legal frameworks are needed to protect people from possible technology misuses while preserving the benefits that science and technology can bring to society? „The Cambridge Handbook of Information Technology, Life Sciences and Human Rights“ addresses precisely this question and stand out as a crucial reference in the field.

Come and discuss this subject with co-editors of the Handbook:
