Update: The TechTop10 List is thrilled to grow its international audience in conjunction with Brazil’s top weekly news magazine, Época.
Click here to read my interview (in Portuguese, though you can use Google Translate for a mediocre translation). They will be translating an item on the list for Brazilians each week!
I created the Tech Top 10 List of Ethical Dilemmas and Policy Issues in Science and Technology while working for Notre Dame’s Reilly Center for Science, Technology, and Values from 2012-2018. While the list is no longer housed at Notre Dame after the Center decided to end its outreach program, it remains the same excellent resource that has garnered almost half a million readers since 2012.
You can find the list at techtop10list.com.
The list is designed for both citizens and scientists alike and is used in classrooms around the world. My hope is that it will help encourage public dialog about the use and risks of emerging technologies. Over the next year, I will be updating old entries, adding resources for curriculum development, and highlighting ways the list can be used for productive conversations from the classroom to the dinner table.
