New Report on Military Human Enhancements Tackles Ethical Dilemmas
Questions Loom for Bioethics, Laws of War, Military Operations, and Broader Society
The Ethics + Emerging Sciences Group at Cal Poly today released a 100+ page report on military human enhancements. Where the use of other novel technologies, such as robotics and cyberweapons, have caught society and policymakers by surprise, this new report anticipates ethical and policy dilemmas ahead of science and technology.
Funded by the Greenwall Foundation, "Enhanced Warfighters: Risk, Ethics, and Policy" is the first study to examine a wide array of practical issues arising from military enhancements. Even philosophical questions here -- such as how to define enhancement, and whether enhancements technically are biological weapons -- have real-world policy implications, such as determining which international humanitarian laws apply.
