Technology is powerful. Technology is life-changing. Technology is embedded in our daily life and developing at a quickening pace. But it has a hidden side that deserves our attention.

In our third talk, we’ll be discussing the social responsibility of tech companies. A recent article in The New Yorker holds major tech companies to account: “you can’t really wash your hands of the impact your algorithms and your ability to shape popular sentiment in society”. We’ll be discussing issues of power, social responsibility and the role that both consumers and companies play in creating a better world.
