The discussion will informed by the increasing diversity of ethical frame works available, among which Roboethics, Carol Gilligans ethics of care, and Danial Starrs work differentiating Care ethics from ethics based on a Confucianism.

Presenter Biography:

Laurence Cuffe has a background in both Science and Teaching, and mostly teaches mathematics to people who have had problems learning it. He has taught blended learning and TEL modules with the NCI, but spends a lot more of his time explaining what a percentage is, and why it might be worth learning, to students who feel that problems such as seven times seven are sufficiently challenging to justify getting a calculator out.
