In-house Philosopher

The companies that make connected products need to take ethical responsibility for the products they develop and the way they process data.

But what is ethically responsible is not always clear cut. That’s why Seluxit, together with Aalborg University, has hired an Industrial PhD student in the field of Philosophy, with a focus on Ethics.

Jakob Thrane Mainz was hired in September 2018 for a three-year period with the task of tackling the ethical questions regarding product data head on. From the 1 July, 2019, Seluxit will begin to publish some of the results of Jakob’s ongoing work on our website at The content will include a series of articles called “the principles of data ethics” that should guide Seluxit, as well as Seluxit’s customers, as they collaborate on creating Internet-connected products.
