Call for abstracts: Special issue of Science and Engineering Ethics


The Center for the Study of Ethics in the Professions (CSEP) invites submissions for a special issue of Science and Engineering Ethics that seeks to explore the convergences and disparities in approaches to intelligence in neuroscience and computer science. Papers submitted for this special issue should explore the ethical and social implications that arise in AI and neurotechnology. Here the term “brain-based” intelligence encompasses both human and non-human animal intelligence. This special issue aims to advance an interdisciplinary discussion between scientists, practitioners, and scholars around these questions.

Topics of contributions may include but are not limited to:

  • Finding a Common Language: Psychology, Neuroscience, and AI
  • Understanding Intelligence: The Physiological and the Mechanical
  • Ethics of Anthropomorphic Design and Processes in AI
  • Ethical and Social Implications of AI and Neurotechnology
  • Rights in AI and Neurotechnology: Policies, Regulations and Legislation
  • Similarities and Differences of Ethics in AI and Neuroscience
  • Science-fiction: Friend or Foe?
  • Merging of Brains and AI Technology
  • Brain-Computer Interfaces
  • Hybrid Intelligence

Abstracts can be from the fields of neuroscience, computer science, engineering, psychology, philosophy, ethics, law, political science, and social science.

Abstracts of 500 words or less are due to Elisabeth Hildt by Saturday, September 15.
