The development of smart technologies such as 3D Printing, AI and Big Data is promising, but it needs to include the subject traditions that have centuries of experience and competence to reflect on questions about the meaning and aim of everything. In this lecture, Archbishop Antje Jackelén shows why the insights of theology and philosophy cannot be reduced to decoration in the final stages of development, but is something that needs to be integrated into the process from the beginning.

About the TUR Ethics Seminar:
Welcome to the TUR Ethics Seminar! The purpose of this seminar series is to inspire, provide knowledge, and develop the skills of teachers and pedagogical leaders interested in strengthening the ethical aspects of education within the Faculty of Science and Technology. We welcome both those who are experts in ethics in science and technology, those who have some experience, and those who would like to get introduced to the topic. We discuss issues such as why and how ethics can be introduced in our education. We discuss experience in ethics training that is already being conducted at the Faculty as well as at other institutions.
