Wendell Wallach specializes in the ethics and governance of emerging technologies. Contributions to robotics, artificial intelligence, cognitive science, biotechnology, technology policy, ethics, and philosophy have established him as a transdisciplinary scholar. He co-authored (with Colin Allen, Indiana University) Moral Machines: Teaching Robots Right From Wrong, which mapped the new field variously known as machine morality, machine ethics, and values alignment. The more recent A Dangerous Master: How to keep technology from slipping beyond our control is a primer on emerging technologies and their societal impact. In addition to his Yale affiliation, he is a senior advisor to The Hastings Institute, a fellow at the Center for Law and Innovation at the Sandra Day O’Connor School of Law (ASU), and a fellow of the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies.
