The video of the first-ever IFToMM Webinar by Prof. Teun Koetsier is available for the viewers!

In the last two decades, we have gained more knowledge than in all of human history. Mechanical engineers used to focus on just a few aspects of a machine, but now we must think about its environmental impact, interconnectedness, and intelligence. Our goal has always been to improve the world, but we must also consider the ethical implications of our work. With exponential growth, we need to anticipate and adapt to the ever-changing world, and even IFToMM must face this reality.

This webinar aims to: (1) initiate a reflection and a dialogue on ethics (2) promote methods and practices within the IFToMM community.

Prof. Teun Koetsier (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam) is a historian and philosopher of mathematics with a specific interest in the history of machines. In 2019, he published ‘The Ascent of GIM, the Global Intelligent Machine, A History of Production and Information Machines’. GIM is the successor of the Internet of things. It is, in fact, a giant robotic machine that covers the globe. It is no science fiction. It exists and grows and gets smarter and smarter.
