"We shape technology, and technology shapes us: in particular in our social relations. We must therefore make sure that progress is based on a deep insight into what it means to be human. Otherwise, we risk failing. This is a perspective in engineering research that may come to mean a great deal for our future." Professor Peter Gall Krogh, the Department of Engineering, Aarhus University.
