The introduction of any new technology into society raises several challenges. One challenge is to appropriately deal with the expected and potential benefits and disadvantages. From a societal point of view, the benefits of new technologies should outweigh their risks, and this raises the challenge how we can predict benefits and hazards. A second challenge is to successfully embed technology in society. New technologies may require new organizational forms and new forms of regulation or other institutions. Technology and society need to be mutually adapted to successfully introduce new technology in society. Third, new technology might create new moral questions and dilemmas.
