Lecture Theatre 175, Old College

SCRIPT Centre Seminar Series in conjunction with ISSTI

This seminar will explore how actors, from technology developers and policy makers to regulators, insurers and civil society groups, are facing the novelty and uncertainty of newly emerging technologies. Anticipation about performance and use occurs; anticipation as to governance issues, including changing responsibilities, is a challenge. Soft law is a partial answer at best.
