From healthcare and medtech to fintech and blockchain, technology holds the promise of a better future for all. However, it is not difficult to point out areas where the application of technology does the opposite and becomes dangerous instead. For example, AI, robotics and automation may increase efficiency and production, but they may also cost valuable jobs. Ride and bike sharing apps have had a series of unintended consequences, including greater traffic congestion, sidewalk cluttering and rainbow waves of "bike graves."
How can we increase the social benefits of technology while reducing its risks? Should there be an adopted code of ethics for technology creators and distributors? What should this code be? When and what should startups consider during product and service development?
Tech4Good focuses on these questions and more. By encouraging these discussions with private and public companies, governments, startups, and the general public, we strive to reintroduce humanity back into the technology conversation. At the end of the day, humans and society are the ones that stand to gain and lose the most from technological advances, and the conversation on what the rules and ethics are, need to start immediately.
