Artificial intelligence, social media, the Internet of Things – the 2010s was the decade of the motto “move fast and break things”. As societies struggle to grapple with the outcomes of pursuits fueled by this mantra, there is a call for increased input from ethicists and other experts concerned with the human aspect of technology.
We are delighted to have Stephanie Hare with us for a discussion on her latest book Technology is Not Neutral: A Short Guide to Technology Ethics. Is technology neutral? What does responsible tech mean? How can we build a culture of tech-ethics? We invite you to join our open discussion about the impact of technology on society and how we can create more responsible and ethical technologies.
Stephanie Hare is a tech-ethicist focusing on the intersection of technology, politics, and history.
