Background

Founded officially in January 2021, the Ethics Team at Orthogonal Research and Education Lab has its roots in cross-disciplinary collaborations on law and technology. We examine various facets of technology’s ever-expansive interfacing with society. Topics of interest include: AI Ethics, AI Safety, law (particularly AI interpretability / explainability and legilation), shared risk, technology-education access, and neuroethics.
