Several long-term trends in technology evolution have become apparent since these symposia began in 1989. Earlier presenters more frequently discussed treatment methods involving harsh and extensive human intervention. As the symposia have continued, the number of presentations describing extremely harsh and expensive treatment technologies have gradually been supplanted by more subtle and gentler methods. Such methods include subsurface-engineered barriers, phytoremediation, and bioremediation. Nineteen manuscripts were selected for inclusion in this volume, based upon peer review, scientific merit, the editors' perceptions of lasting value or innovative features, and the general applicability of either the technology itself or the scientific methods and scholarly details provided by the authors. General topics include: soil treatment, groundwater treatment, and radioactive waste treatment.

Technology shapes every aspect of human experience and is the primary driver of social and environmental change. Given this, it is perhaps surprising that so little time is spent studying, analysing and ethically assessing new technologies. Occasionally, an issue attracts public attention – for example, the use of human embryonic stem cells in medical research or the online file sharing of music and movies. However, these are the exceptions. For the most part, each new technology and application is enthusiastically embraced with little critical reflection on how it will impact people's lives or the world. Moreover, when an issue raised by an emerging technology is attended to, the language, concepts and critical perspectives to properly address it are frequently found to be lacking. The aim of this textbook is to introduce students and other readers to the ethical issues associated with a broad array of emerging technologies, as well as to help them develop the analytical skills and perspectives necessary for effectively evaluating novel technologies and applications. The technologies discussed include nanotechnology, synthetic biology, robotics, genetic engineering, human enhancement, geoengineering, cultured meat, virtual reality, information technologies, sex selection, and many more. Key features include: • Comprehensive coverage from thirty six chapters written by leading thinkers in the field • An extensive introduction that presents a framework for analysing the ethical dimensions of emerging technologies • Section overviews and chapter summaries that help students master the book's content • Discussion questions that provoke reflection on the issues discussed in each chapter Ethics and Emerging Technologies is ideal for undergraduate courses on technology and society and technology and ethics. It is also appropriate for technology-oriented modules in environmental ethics and bioethics, as well as ethics modules in engineering and information technology courses.

Advances in technology have always had a significant impact on sport. This book surveys the next generation of emerging technologies and considers how sport managers, governing bodies and officials can meet the challenges that they pose for sport competition, participation and events. It explores cutting edge developments in areas such as gene doping, vision and brain technologies, 3D printing technologies, molecular communication technologies and our ability to "rebuild" bodies. Each chapter considers the implications of a particular technology in terms of ethics, rules and regulations, facilities and resourcing, as well as the emergence of completely new forms of sport, and offers strategies for future sport management. Emerging Technologies in Sport is a valuable resource for sport industry professionals, undergraduate students in the fields of sport management, sport tourism, and sport business, and a fascinating read for anyone with an interest in sport and future applications of emerging technologies within sport.

I sommeren 1985 blev der på Amsterdams Frie Universitet afholdt en workshop med deltagere fra vesteuropæiske universiteter, NATO, det hollandske forsvarsministerium og forskere i fredsbevægelsen. Deltagernes indslag på emner som NATOs fremtid, set med europæiske øjne, kunstig intelligens, sikkerhedsforanstaltninger, overvågningssatelitter, førerløse fly, osv. er samlet af tidligere SIPRI-leder F. Barnaby og forsker af militærteknologi M.T. Borg.

The recent digital and mobile revolutions are a minor blip compared to the next wave of technological change, as everything from robot swarms to skin-top embeddable computers and bio printable organs start appearing in coming years. In this collection of inspiring essays, designers, engineers, and researchers discuss their approaches to experience design for groundbreaking technologies. Design not only provides the framework for how technology works and how it’s used, but also places it in a broader context that includes the total ecosystem with which it interacts and the possibility of unintended consequences. If you’re a UX designer or engineer open to complexity and dissonant ideas, this book is a revelation.

In this sequel volume to ACS Symposium Series No. 422, Emerging Technologies in Hazardous Waste Management, the editors expand their coverage of the subject with contributions on air treatment, as well as a greater examination of computer applications and modeling. Twenty-one chapters are divided into four sections covering thermal treatment and abiotic emissions control, water management, biological treatment, and solid waste management. Of special interest is a presentation on the use of internal radiant energy within a gas-fired combustion chamber to maintain high combustion temperatures, a technique that appears important for the thermal destruction of many chlorinated species.

This study evaluated the U.S. Air Force's survey of emerging technologies of the future, Project Forecast II, for its relevance to the Army's potential requirements for the future, as indicated by the Army 21 Interim Operational Concept. The study concluded that there is a high correlation between the Army's needs and the technologies identified in Forecast II, although the Army could benefit from a poll of its contractors to uncover more Army-relevant technologies. In addition, by using systems as the bridge between projected technologies and specified military capability requirements, as the Air Force did in Forecast II, the Army could take advantage of a valuable means of establishing and gauging the relevance of emerging technologies to future requirements.
