Tech for Social Good?

February 18, 2021
5:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Event Description

The rapid rise of tech giants and information networks has had global consequences, from the information-sharing fueled rise of conspiracy-driven populism, to disparate calls for regulatory responses to disinformation and hate speech, to questions on how AI can be used to infringe upon basic human rights. How can the same technological forces triggering disruption be harnessed for social good? What social, legal, and philosophical pathways could pave the way for this paradigm shift? Join this discussion of the global implications of the rise of big tech and the possible pathways to achieving digital inclusion on a global scale.
