I have investigated and written on the topic of ethics and exponentially growing technologies in both my Ph.D. thesis and in my ongoing book, entitled Exponential Ethics.

Here’s an article I wrote on the subject.

Ethics must keep up with the exponential progress of technology; it must leapfrog and facilitate public debates among influential contemporary thinkers, scientists, artists, engineers, philosophers, and science-
fiction authors.

This will be the most pioneering decade in history.Exponential technologies will lead to exponential innovation.

We should strive to take this journey, conscious of the risks we are facing, and raise a call to action for openly discussing the social repercussions these technologies could have if left only to their “makers”—a call to action to “Reboot Ethics.”
