Can one prevent the transformation of technology from a friend to foe? Constant technological change characterizes our current lives and future, but ambivalence marks our relationships with technology. Students will be introduced to concepts necessary to understand scientific, engineering and societal driving forces of selected technological transformations, and the conflicts inherent in introduction of new technologies. We investigate approaches to judicious implementation of technology to prevent it changing from friend to foe.
