Lessons from The Brain Center at Whipple's

The practice of ethics seems to have been forgotten – or perhaps ignored – as technology has improved. At every turn, we seem to find examples where someone realized they could do something without stopping to ask if they should.   Further, the long-lasting and wide-ranging impact of technology is not fully understood. We're only beginning to see the dangers that lie ahead. Who's at the helm to steer the ship through these rocky ethical shoals?     “I think technology really increased human ability. But technology cannot produce compassion.” – Dalai Lama     Would you consider leaving a rating or review for the show on Apple Podcasts?
