Registration – TEC Talks
The speed and breadth of technological advancement and proliferation are causing seismic shifts – and often replicating historical and systematic racism, discrimination, and inequalities – across every aspect of modern life, including interpersonal relationships, work, education, healthcare, financial services, criminal justice, politics, diplomacy, infrastructure, and more.
Individuals and organizations with the power and resources to develop and implement new technologies generate massive financial, social, and political capital, while the marginalized members of society are often either excluded from the benefits of emerging technologies or made to bear the brunt of the most invasive, destructive, and unregulated applications of those technological developments.
We’re pairing leading scholars studying these phenomena and practitioners grappling with these issues in the field in conversation on questions about ways in which power is wielded via technology, such as: Who reaps the benefits, or consequences, of technology? How is technology reshaping, or reinforcing, current power dynamics in society? And can technology distribute power more equitably and, if so, how?
