In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...

New Report on Military Human Enhancements Tackles Ethical Dilemmas
Questions Loom for Bioethics, Laws of War, Military Operations, and Broader Society

SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/01/13 -- The Ethics + Emerging Sciences Group at Cal Poly today released a 100+ page report on military human enhancements. Where the use of other novel technologies, such as robotics and cyberweapons, have caught society and policymakers by surprise, this new report anticipates ethical and policy dilemmas ahead of science and technology.

Funded by the Greenwall Foundation, "Enhanced Warfighters: Risk, Ethics, and Policy" is the first study to examine a wide array of practical issues arising from military enhancements. Even philosophical questions here -- such as how to define enhancement, and whether enhancements technically are biological weapons -- have real-world policy implications, such as determining which international humanitarian laws apply.

The technologies range from current use of cognitive stimulants (including amphetamines or "go pills") to future use of exoskeletons and neural computer chips. For example, the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, has been funding research to change human metabolism (so that warfighters won't need to eat or sleep) and synthetic telepathy (so that warfighters can communicate by thought alone).

"These are game-changing technologies in war, but dangerously little has been said about ethics, law, or policy," said Dr. Patrick Lin, lead author of the report at Cal Poly. "As we're seeing in the debate on military drones, it's crucial that we consider policy, law, and ethics before these technologies take off, not after the genie has left the bottle."

Co-authors of the report are Prof. Maxwell J. Mehlman, law professor at Case Western Reserve University, and Keith Abney, senior philosophy lecturer at Cal Poly. The report is free to access at http://ethics.calpoly.edu/Greenwall_report.pdf.
