If you have a question about this talk, please contact Maurice Chiodo. Mathematicians have taken it upon themselves at several points in history to work for the betterment of the human race. We have applied our specialised skills and abilities to solve problems of large social, economic and political importance. These highly complex solutions that we develop can have, and often have had, unintended consequences far beyond their original design. This often comes about because mathematicians fail to think ahead and ask the question “What am I making, and what else can it be used for?” This talk is part of the C.U. Ethics in Mathematics Society (CUEiMS) series. ## This talk is included in these lists:Note that ex-directory lists are not shown. |
