Neuroethics and Artificial Intelligence Project

PsySRPsychologists for Social Responsibility supports scientific progress balanced by ethical development aimed at advancing the well-being of all people. In our Neuroethics and Artificial Intelligence Project, PsySR is working towards gaining better understanding and raising awareness of ethical issues involved in applications of artificial intelligence and neuroscientific research, such as the development of fully autonomous weapons, advanced interrogation and deception techniques, surveillance techniques and neuromarketing.

We are interested in exploring the impact of such systems and techniques on the general population and in questioning underlying assumptions embedded in this research. It is our hope that by engaging the public in discussions on these topics, we can serve to further the development of ethical applications of brain research.
