Having received a grant from The Applied Ethics Center as an undergraduate, Jake Burley writes:

"I published the resulting paper "Workplace Automation and Polical Replacement: A Valid Analogy?" with the AEC's director, Professor Nir Eisikovits. Once I completed my bachelor's degree, I began a research fellowship at the AEC to work on issues related to the ethics of emerging technologies in conjunction with The Institute for the Ethics of Emerging Technologies (IEET). This policy paper, "Emerging Technologies and Higher Education," resulted from research done with the AEC and IEET and was co-authored by Alec Stubb, a post-doctoral fellow at the AEC, with contributions by James Hughes and Nir Eisikovits."
