The Future of Tech With a Conscience

In every facet of our lives, humans perpetually interact with technology. While at work, during our personal time, to monitor our health and even to drive our vehicles, these interactions often lead to greater productivity and an enhanced quality of life. But our immersion in and fascination with technology can also distract, frustrate and even harm us.

What does it mean to develop technology with a conscience? What are our obligations to use technology responsibly? How can we improve the designs of new technological innovations while carefully considering their societal impact? 

We hope you were able to join us on May 2, 2019, as we explored the latest discoveries and issues at the intersection of humans and technology. The Futures Forum engaged leading experts on three key themes:

  • Everyday Human-Machine Interactions
  • Technology and Privacy
  • Digital Competencies in the New Millennium 

If you were unable to attend or would like to revisit the topics, you can view the full day at the replay links below.
