Description of This Research Track
First and foremost, STEM is important in determining and understanding current and future challenges posed by Socially Disruptive Technologies (SDTs).
Secondly, the ESDiT consortium wishes to interact with STEM areas in order to contribute to improved and more responsible ethical guidance of SDTs.
To an extent, our project embodies STEM through the STEM representatives present within the consortium, and affiliated to the project. In addition, we are reaching out to other STEM-oriented Gravitation research consortia (e.g., Hybrid Intelligence – with a focus on AI), in order to connect to scholars in the STEM field.
To help shape our thinking about collaboration and outreach with regards to STEM fields, we have three main, and partly overlapping, lines of thinking:
- creating spaces for conversation and learning with regard to STEM;
- ensuring a fruitful, open, bi-directional exchange;
- sharing results and insights.
