This video was taken of Professor Rafael Capurro delivering his plenary address at the IEEE Symposium on Technology and Society (ISTAS) held at the University of Wollongong 7-10 June 2010. Professor Capurro's talk was titled "Ethical Aspects of ICT Implants in the Human Body (Opinion no. 20): European Group on Ethics in Science and New Technologies." Among other honours, Professor Capurro is the Director of the Steinbeis-Transfer-Institute Information Ethics (STI-IE) and the Editor in Chief of the International Review of Information Ethics (IRIE). The theme of the conference was "The Social Implications of Emerging Technologies" and given Professor Capurro's involvement in the first major ethical study on ICT implants which was funded by the European Commission, Associate Professor Katina Michael who was the program chair of the conference found it necessary to ensure there was a talk by the eminent professor. Professor Capurro gave a stirring opening talk on the fundamental issues related to ethics and ICT implants.
