Patrick Lin Appointed as Fellow of the IEET

Hartford, CT | Posted on February 4th, 2010

Dr. Lin earned his BA from University of California at Berkeley, with substantial work in the biological sciences, and MA and PhD from University of California at Santa Barbara. He is an assistant professor in Cal Poly's philosophy department—teaching courses in ethics, political theories, philosophy of law, and technology ethics—and also is currently an ethics fellow at the US Naval Academy.

In addition to several journal papers and edited symposiums, Dr. Lin is a co-editor on Nanoethics: The Ethical and Social Implications of Nanotechnology (Wiley Intersciences, 2007), Nanotechnology & Society: Current and Emerging Ethical Issues (Springer, 2008), and an anthology on robot ethics (MIT Press, in progress). He is a co-author on What Is Nanotechnology and Why Does It Matter?: From Science to Ethics (Wiley-Blackwell, forthcoming). He is also the lead author on a pair of government-funded reports: Autonomous Military Robotics: Risk, Ethics, and Design (Office of Naval Research, 2008) and Ethics of Human Enhancement: 25 Questions & Answers (NSF, 2009).

Dr. Lin serves on the editorial and advisory boards for a number of academic and industry journals, including Nanotechnology Law & Business, Studies in Ethics, Law, and Technology, and NanoEthics. He is currently working on ethics and policy projects related to advanced military technologies, geoengineering, space technologies, virtual reality, synthetic biology, and more.

About Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies
The IEET’s mission is to be a center for voices arguing for a responsible, constructive, ethical approach to the most powerful emerging technologies. We believe that technological progress can be a catalyst for positive human development so long as we ensure that technologies are safe and equitably distributed. We call this a "technoprogressive" orientation.

We aim to showcase technoprogressive ideas about how technological progress can increase freedom, happiness, and human flourishing in democratic societies. Focusing on emerging technologies that have the potential to positively transform social conditions and the quality of human lives—especially "human enhancement technologies" — the IEET seeks to cultivate academic, professional, and popular understanding of their implications, both positive and negative, and to encourage responsible public policies for their safe and equitable use.
