Yeah Technology - 09/01/2013 - Moral Objects

Yeah Technology was held at Yulli's Bar & Restaurant in Surry Hills, on the 9th of January 2013.

The third talk was on 'moral objects', and the intersection of ethics and technology. Click here to watch the video on youtube, or have a peep at the video embedded below.

Delivering this talk was Yeah Sessions regular Ryan Mitchell Wittingslow. Ryan is a profligate man of philosophy, and in this talk he explores the implications that technology holds for us, in terms of extensions to the human self, and the moral values we attribute to objects in our vicinity.

Ryan is doing a PhD at Sydney University, researching transhumanism and bioethics. Check out his academic profile here, read some of delectable writing here, and get in touch with Ryan via his Twitter feed.
