The Center for Ethics of Technology (CET) is a Polish think&do tank, run under the auspices of the Humanites Institute, advocating human and environment friendly innovations.
We want technologies to be aligned with the commonly shared principles and values. We show how to include them in the design of digital tools. We also create a platform for dialogue for a wide range of stakeholders.
We want innovations to be beneficial to the whole society. This is why we promote integration and collaboration of different communities on the design, implementation and use of digital tools. We popularize standards and best practices concerning responsible development of technologies and put stress on the right education.
We scrutinize technologies’ impact on individual and social life in their different aspects. We are convinced that technological progress is not determined by forces being out of human control and that we can influence its direction. We also believe that technology should be regarded in its broader context: economic, social and political.
