    We believe emerging BCI privacy concerns call for a coordinated response by engineers and neuroscientists, lawyers and ethicists, government and industry. Ideally, devices, algorithms, standards and regulations can be designed to mitigate BCI privacy problems and ethical challenges. The first step towards doing so should be an open discussion between ethicists, legal experts, neuroscientists, and ... View full abstract»

    The default password problem (an "admin" account having the password "admin," or a system with no password on certain default accounts), has been around as long as computer systems have been sold and shipped to unsuspecting new owners. This problem was mentioned on Usenet as early as 1994, regarding Silicon Graphic Irix (SGI) workstations and reported to SGI (who did nothing to fix the problem unt... View full abstract»

    It is often said that technological artifacts are morally neutral, that they are bereft of morality save for whatever we might say about their designers and users. Designers and users, being people, tend to be considered the proper and exclusive focus of our moral attention in the designer-technology-user trio, while technological artifacts, mere tools, cannot contribute anything morally. Technolo... View full abstract»

    Two concerns dominate engineering ethics pedagogy. The first is that 21st century technologies present daunting ethical questions that require strong engagement with engineering ethics. The second is that engineering students don't emotionally engage with the study of ethics - in short, they don't care much about it. Instead, today's engineering students are confident that technology itself will o... View full abstract»

    What should a patient know before he or she allows a physician to control a part of the patient's brain? While this sounds like a philosophical thought experiment designed to twist the intuition, it is meant to address the ramifications of a widely used clinical therapy called deep brain stimulation (DBS). Deep brain stimulation is a therapy, approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), to ... View full abstract»

    While physical interaction with robots is becoming common in many domains, numerous devices are not appropriated by their users and remain unused in the cupboard. This phenomenon is observed particularly with robotic devices that are designed to interact closely with the body, especially if they are meant to compensate for a loss of sensory or motor capacity. This article uses the more extreme exa... View full abstract»
