IN ORDER FOR TECH TO REDUCE UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES, WE NEED MORE PROBLEM FINDERS
To minimize technology’s collateral damage, we need to change the types of individuals we recruit for the field.
BUILD YOUR CAREER IN RESPONSIBLE TECH
A better, more inclusive, more just tech future starts by opening the tech economy to people from a wide range of professional backgrounds. Here’s how to do that.
IMPROVING SOCIAL MEDIA STARTS HERE
Right now, the social media landscape is controlled by a small number of players, even though their decisions affect large swaths of the population. Fixing the problems we face will take greater participation from everyone involved.
WHAT ARE ALL THESE ALGORITHMS DOING TO US
Algorithmic curation is a useful solution that wrangles the massive amount of content on the web into a manageable format. But it comes with costs, and we need to think seriously about its effects on individuals and society at large.
TO SURVIVE, SOCIAL MEDIA NEEDS BETTER GOVERNANCE
As social media companies increasingly take on the role of free speech arbiters, they need to ensure their policies offer transparency and the types of checks and balances government relies on.
NOT ALL TECH PROBLEMS ARE ENGINEERING PROBLEMS
Improving the public perception of the tech industry depends on more than just making better products. Instead, tech needs to reckon with the power it holds in today's world.
WE NEED OUR TECH TO HELP US FEEL MORE
The tools that allow us to stay connected often leave us feeling hollow. To provide meaningful connections, tech needs to figure out a way to differentiate online interactions.
YOUR STARTUP NEEDS AN AI ETHICIST. HOW DO YOU FIND ONE?
Responsible innovation is likely to be one of the hottest careers of the near future. But before it can catch on, we need to build a pipeline to get people into the field.
